Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry: A Postdoctoral Program in the Humanities and Social Sciences
Washington University announces the ninth year of Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Program designed to encourage interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching across the humanities and social sciences. We invite applications from recent Ph.D.s for the position of Fellow. In September 2010, the selected Fellow will join our continuing Fellows in order to participate in the University’s ongoing interdisciplinary programs and seminars. The Fellow will receive a two year appointment with a stipend beginning at $44,450 per year. Postdoctoral Fellows have an opportunity to plan and pursue their own continuing research in association with a senior faculty member at Washington University, and, over the course of their two-year appointment, to teach three undergraduate courses in their home discipline and to collaborate in an interdisciplinary theory and methods workshop. There is no application form, but further information on Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry is available on the web at http://www.artsci.wustl.edu/~szwicker/Mellon_Postdoctoral_Program.html.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, a description of their research program (no more than three single-spaced pages), a brief proposal for the seminar in theory and methods, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation. All materials must be submitted in paper copy. Contact Info: Steven Zwicker Department of English Washington University Campus Box 1122 One Brookings Drive St. Louis, Missouri 63130
