POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW. The Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, invites applications for the 2013-2014 Jimmy and Dee Haslam Postdoctoral Fellowship, a one-year fellowship to be held August 1, 2013 to July 31, 2014 and renewable for one year. The Haslam Fellowship is open to untenured scholars in any field of late antique, medieval or Renaissance studies whose work falls in the period 300-1700 C.E.

During the course of the year, the Fellow will teach one upper-division undergraduate class and one graduate seminar in his or her field of expertise. Seminars will preferably use primary source materials. The Fellow receives a $1,000 travel stipend and is eligible to apply for additional travel and research funding through the Institute. Salary is $40,000 and includes full benefits.
