Job description

Washington University in St. Louis announces the twenty-first 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, 2022, and no earlier than June 30, 2018) who have not previously held a research-oriented postdoctoral fellowship for a position as Fellow. In September 2022, the newly selected Fellow will join the University’s ongoing interdisciplinary programs and seminars. The Fellow will receive a two-year appointment with a nine-month academic year salary. The Fellowship salary for 2021-2022 is $57,750; the salary for 2022-2023 will be set in early 2022. Postdoctoral Fellows pursue their own continuing research in association with a senior faculty mentor at WU. During the two years of their fellowship, 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 disciplines), a brief proposal for a broadly encompassing 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. Further information on Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry is available on the web at https://mii.wustl.edu/.  Please email us at [email protected] with additional questions.

Submit materials by December 7th, 2021.
