Job description

Yale University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Humanities, to begin in July 2020. The Fellow will be affiliated with the interdisciplinary Program in the Humanities. The Fellow will teach one course each semester in the Directed Studies program, an integrated set of courses in western literature, philosophy, and historical & political thought. Instructors teaching in the program take turns giving the weekly lecture to the entire program, and meet with their own smaller group of fifteen students twice each week in a seminar setting.

In addition to the two courses in Directed Studies, the Fellow will teach one additional course in the Humanities Program, on a topic chosen in consultation with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and Chair. The Fellow will devote the rest of his or her time to individual research and will have opportunities to present work-in-progress to faculty in the Humanities Program. Compensation is commensurate with education and experience, and will include Yale’s benefits package.


Applicants must have received the Ph.D or equivalent degree in a humanistic field of inquiry after September 2017 and before July 2020. Priority will be given to applications from individuals who have not held other postdoctoral fellowships.

Applicants must be qualified to teach in one of the three tracks: Literature, Philosophy, or Historical and Political Thought. Please consult the Directed Studies website for the syllabus and other information, at www.directedstudies.yale.edu/
