Rice University and the Center for the Study of Cultures announce the
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation PostdoctoralFellowship Program designed to
encourage interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching. Two postdoctoral
fellows will be selected for a two-year appointment beginning July 1,
2004 at a stipend of $36,000 per year plus $2,000 moving and research
fund. Fellows will teach two courses per academic year, will be
expected to make significant progress in their research, and will also
participate in the intellectual life of relevant departments,programs,
and Center research groups. While candidates will be affiliated with
an appropriate department in the humanities or social sciences, we are
particularly interested in candidates whose interests are
interdisciplinary. The categories are therefore open in terms of
disciplinary approach. We anticipate making appointments in one or two
areas of specialization which include:
- Gender, Culture and Language -- Potential areas of research include
 but are not limited to gender and science, gender and religion,
 gender and language, transnational movements, and intersections of
 race and gender in literature.
- Interdisciplinary Approaches to Consciousness and Thought -- The
 study of the human mind from a multidisciplinary perspective,
 integrating ideas at the crossroads of philosophy, psychology, and
 linguistics. Areas of interest may include the nature and
 functioning of consciousness,cognitive models and structures, the
 basis of human reason, and the relation of thought and language.
