Subject: Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships at Stanford

Dear Colleagues,

The following postdoctoral fellowships are available again this coming
year. Though the competition is across all humanistic disciplines,
three times in the past, one of the awards has been made to a
linguist. We would like to encourage applications for these
fellowships from linguists, especially those whose humanistic ties
(e.g. with specific language studies, philosophy, etc.) and research
excellence would make them competetive candidates.

We attach the relevant application information. Further information
may be obtained from Jane Edsell (edsellcsli.stanford.edu), but
please don't hesitate to contact us directly, if you have further
questions.

ANDREW W. MELLON POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN THE HUMANITIES
AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY for 1996-97

To be awarded to highly promising scholar-teachers in the Humanities,
these non-faculty one-year positions will carry department affiliation
and limited teaching duties, and the opportunity for scholarly work
and intellectual growth. The Ph.D. must be in hand by September,
1996, and preferably received within the last seven years. The award
carries an annual stipend of $37,750 and may be renewed for a second
year. U.S. citizenship is not required.

Three letters of reference and application papers for 1996-97 are due
as early as possible and must be postmarked no later than November 13,
1995. Because of the volume of papers expected, this deadline is
firm. Candidates will be notified of the results by early March,
1996.

Applications should be marked

be returned unless accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope;
because of space limitations, application materials supplied by
candidates cannot be held over from year to year.
