The Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Duke University would like to host a Medieval and Renaissance Studies Postdoctoral Fellow for the 2012-13 academic year. This residential fellowship is meant to complement a financial fellowship or support for academic leave. An applicant must have funding for the year, to which our fellowship will provide residence and a vibrant intellectual community within which to work. The successful applicant will be given an office on the Duke campus, faculty library privileges, and a forum within which to present work in progress. In the spring of 2013, a symposium will be planned that centers on the postdoctoral fellow’s research. With over three hundred faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars who work in the field of medieval and early modern studies, the Triangle area (Duke, UNC, NCSU) is a haven for scholars working in this field. A full calendar of events provides a variety of intellectual stimulation, and we offer a community of active scholars within which to network and develop ideas. To get a picture of the area’s scholarly offerings, see the 2011-12 calendar of events on the CMRS website at: <http://medren.trinity.duke.edu/cmrs/>.
Both American and international scholars are welcome to apply. Applicants should submit a c.v., a sample published article or chapter from a book, a description of current research to be pursued while in residence, and an explanation of funding for the 2012-13 year. The deadline for application is April 30, 2012. Submit applications by e-mail attachment to Dr. Michael Cornett, Program Coordinator, Duke Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
