Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Eligibility Note:

Candidates must have graduate with a PhD between June 2015 and June 2019. 

Scholars who have received their PhD degree after June 2015 in any field of inquiry in the humanities or humanistic social sciences - broadly conceived - are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship, made possible through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to Wesleyan University. The purpose of this Fellowship is to provide scholars who have recently completed their PhD's with free time to further their own work in a cross-disciplinary setting, and to associate them with a distinguished faculty.

He or she will teach a one-semester undergraduate course; participate in the collegial life of the Center for the Humanities, which sponsors conferences, lectures, and colloquia; and give one public lecture. The Fellow will be provided with an office at the Center for the Humanities, and will be expected to work there on weekdays while the university is in session, and to reside in Middletown. Please check our themes page here for updates. Scholars whose interests bear upon one of the chosen themes are encouraged to apply for the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship.
