Job description

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, 2020, and no earlier than June 30, 2015) for a position as Fellow. In September 2020, 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 beginning at $55,000 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.
