The Stanford Humanities Center
invites applications for the Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in the Humanities, a unique opportunity for
recent PhD recipients in the humanities to develop as scholars and teachers. Up to four fellowships will
be awarded for a term of two years (with the possibility of a third). Fellows teach two courses per year
(or the equivalent) in one of Stanford’s 15 humanities departments or through an interdisciplinary
program. Recipients are also expected to participate in the intellectual life of the program, which
includes regular meetings with other fellows and faculty to share work in progress and to discuss topics
of mutual interest. Fellows will also be affiliated with the Stanford Humanities Center and will have
the opportunity to be active in its programs and workshops.
Program admissions focus on
selected fields of humanities scholarship in each application year on a rotating basis. Eligible fields
for the 2018 competition (for fellowships beginning autumn 2019) are:
Gender and Sexuality Studies
We invite applicants from any
field whose work has demonstrable relevance to teaching and research in one of the eligible Stanford
departments or programs. Candidates should specify in the application cover letter the primary eligible
field for which they would like to be considered.
Candidates for this competition must have
received their PhD between January 1, 2016 and June 30, 2019. Fellowships will begin on September 1,
2019. Stanford PhDs and employees are not eligible for consideration.
The stipend for 2018-19
will be $80,000, and compensation will include additional support for computer equipment, research, and
relocation expenses, depending on the needs of individual fellows.
Applications must be
submitted by 11:59 PM PT on November 1, 2018. To apply, complete the online application process via the
