Applications now being accepted for Mellon Dance Studies 2014-15 Postdoctoral Fellows
A consortium of three research universities—Brown, Northwestern, and Stanford—seeks to appoint Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows in Dance Studies for the academic year 2014-15. Fellows will be associated with humanities centers on each campus and will teach two undergraduate courses. In addition, fellows will attend intensive week-long seminars, held the summer before and after the fellowship year, devoted to strategies for interdisciplinary research and teaching. International applicants are welcome, as are applicants from Ph.D.s in all fields in the humanities and humanistic social sciences that border dance studies.
The initial appointment is for one year, renewable for a second year. Applicants must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. no later than July 15, 2014 and no earlier than July 15, 2011. Campus placement and departmental affiliation will be determined by the Search Committee.
