The Medieval Institute offers a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship for a junior faculty scholar in Medieval Studies. The fellowship permits a faculty member in any field of medieval studies to pursue research in residence at Notre Dame’s Medieval Institute during the academic year 2014-15.
Though the Fellowship carries no teaching responsibilities, we expect the Fellow to participate in the intellectual life of the Institute and its multidisciplinary activities. The Fellow will have a carrel in the Medieval Institute, full library and computer privileges, and access to the Institute’s research tools. The Fellow will be expected to reside in South Bend.
At the conclusion of the Fellow’s residency, three senior scholars are invited to campus for a half-day, public seminar discussion of the Fellow’s research. The Fellow is encouraged to invite leading researchers who can critique a draft version of the Fellow’s work and offer advice on issues arising out of the work. The panelists spend additional time with the Fellow in one-to-one conversation and close reading of the draft.
Mellon scholars MUST hold a tenure-track appointment at a U.S. institution and plan to return to their institution following their fellowship year. Applicants must have the Ph.D. in hand as of the application date and must not be more than five years beyond the Ph.D. award date at the time of application.
Stipend: $40,000 (paid directly to Fellow’s home institution).
Application deadline (NEW): March 1, 2014.
