In an effort to foster disciplinary diversity in our program of six postdoctoral fellows, we are not likely to award fellowships to candidates whose teaching would be in the Departments of History, English, or Geography;

Selected recipients may not hold another fellowship simultaneous with this one.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for its postdoctoral fellowship program in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, it will provide 3 two-year postdoctoral fellowships for recent PhD recipients starting on August 28, 2017. Fellows are members of the Institute for Research in the Humanities and Center for the Humanities, and are also affiliated with a humanities or humanistic social science department in the College of Letters & Science, where they will teach a total of three undergraduate courses over two years with no teaching in the first semester of the fellowship. The theme for 2017-2019 is Translation, Adaptation, Transplantation.
In 2017-2018 the stipend for postdoctoral fellows will be at least $60,282 per academic year, with a $5,000 per year research allowance. Fellows will be furnished with office space and computer equipment. Fellows are eligible for health insurance; read more.
