Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy
Academic Years 2023-2025
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

With the sponsorship of the Society for the Humanities, the Sage School of Philosophy at Cornell University invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship position beginning August 1, 2023. The fellowship offers a stipend of $56,000/year.

Applicants should hold a PhD in Philosophy before the start date.  AOS is open, but we are especially interested in the areas of (1) Philosophy of Science, (2) Social and Political Philosophy including Philosophy of Race, and (3) Asian Philosophy.  The fellow will teach one lower-level and one upper-level course each year in their AOS.  Upper-level courses will be seminars open to graduate as well as upper-level undergraduates and may reflect the fellow’s research. 

Fellows spend their time in research and writing during the residential fellowship, and are required to participate in a weekly Fellows Seminar with other Fellows at the Society for the Humanities workshopping each other’s projects.

Review of applications will begin November 15, 2022.

As part of the university's comprehensive vaccination program, all Cornell employees are required to have and provide proof of an FDA-or WHO-authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine and booster or have obtained a university-approved disability/medical or religious exemption, regardless of their role and work location.

New hires are required to provide documentation showing full vaccination status (that is, completion of two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one shot of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) before their first day of work. If a new hire's vaccination is not complete or information is not received by their start date, the first day of work will be delayed. It is possible in some cases that an offer of employment may be withdrawn.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations.

Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will contribute to a climate that supports students, faculty, and staff of all identities and backgrounds. We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented and/or marginalized identities to apply.
