Society of Fellows in the Humanities 2020-2021 Competition, Columbia University
The Columbia Society of Fellows in the Humanities, with grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the William R. Kenan Trust, will appoint a number of postdoctoral fellows in the humanities for the academic year 2020-2021. Fellows newly appointed for 2020-2021 must have received the PhD between 1 January 2018 and 1 July 2020. The Fellowship Stipend for 2020-2021 is $64,000. Medical benefits are provided, and subsidized housing is available. There is a $7,000 research allowance per annum.
The Society of Fellows is committed to assembling a diverse and inclusive academic community. Toward this end, we especially encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups and those whose interests contribute to realizing this goal.
Fellows are appointed as Postdoctoral Research Scholars (Mellon Fellows) in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities and as Lecturers in appropriate departments at Columbia University (departments are listed in the "Application Materials (PDF)"). The one-year Fellowship renews automatically for a second and a third year. In the first year, Fellows teach one course per semester. At least one of these courses must be in the undergraduate ("Core") education program: Contemporary Civilization, Literature Humanities, Music Humanities, Art Humanities, Asian Civilizations, Asian Humanities, or Global Cultures.
