Description:

STANFORD HUMANITIES FELLOWS
 
Stanford University invites applications for the Stanford Humanities
Fellows Program, a postdoctoral fellowship designed to give the best
recent Ph.D. recipients in the humanities a unique opportunity to
develop as scholars and teachers. Up to six Fellowships will be
awarded for a two-year term, renewable for a third year. Fellows will
teach one course and contribute a second course-equivalent per year in
one of Stanford's fifteen humanities departments. In addition, Fellows
will be expected to participate in the intellectual life of the
program by sharing work in progress, meeting regularly as a group and
with Faculty Fellows, and generally contributing to the community of
humanists at Stanford. It is expected, too, that Fellows will be in
residence during the term of their appointment. Over the next three
years, the total number of fellows is expected to be between 12 and
15.
