Postdoctoral Fellowship "Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry"

Washington University in St. Louis announces the nineteenth year of Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry, a postdoctoral fellowship program endowed by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, designed to encourage interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching across the humanities and interpretive social sciences.

We invite applications from recent PhDs, DPhils, or D.F.A.s (in hand by June 30, 2019, and no earlier than June 30, 2014) for a position as Fellow. In September 2019, the newly selected Fellows will join the University’s ongoing interdisciplinary programs and seminars.

The Fellows will receive a two-year appointment with a nine-month academic year salary beginning at $54,150 per year. Postdoctoral Fellows pursue their own continuing research in association with a senior faculty mentor at WU. During the two years of their tenure, they will teach three undergraduate courses and collaborate in leading an interdisciplinary seminar on theory and methods for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the humanities and social sciences.

Applicants should submit, through Interfolio, a cover letter, a description of their research program (no more than 1800 words and accessible to reviewers in other fields), a brief proposal for an interdisciplinary seminar in theory and methods, and a curriculum vitae.  Applicants who have not completed their doctoral work should indicate, in their cover letter, how many chapters of their dissertation are complete and how complete the remaining chapters are. Applicants should arrange for the submission of three confidential letters of recommendation, also via Interfolio. Please email us at mii@wustl.edu with additional questions.

Submit materials to Interfolio at the following link by December 3, 2019. (Portal opens September 1, 2018.)
