Position Description

Yale University invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Humanities, to begin in July 2018. The Fellow will be affiliated with the interdisciplinary Program in the Humanities, a hub of new initiatives in undergraduate education. The Fellow will teach one course each semester in the Directed Studies program, an integrated set of courses in western literature, philosophy, and historical & political thought. Instructors teaching in the program take turns giving the weekly lecture to the entire program, and meet with their own smaller group of eighteen students twice each week in a seminar setting.

In addition to the two courses in Directed Studies, the Fellow will teach one additional course in the Humanities Program, on a topic chosen in consultation with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and Chair. The Fellow will devote the rest of his or her time to individual research and will have opportunities to present work-in-progress to faculty in the Humanities Program. The salary is $50,000 plus benefits (including health coverage) and a research/travel allowance of $2000.

Yale University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Yale values diversity among its students, faculty, and staff and strongly encourages applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and underrepresented minorities.

Qualifications

Applicants must have received the Ph.D or equivalent degree in a humanistic field of inquiry after September 2015 and before July 2018. Priority will be given to applications from individuals who have not held other postdoctoral fellowships.
