Washington University announces the sixteenth year of Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry, a postdoctoral fellowship program endowed by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and designed to encourage interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching across the humanities and social sciences. We invite applications from recent PhDs, DPhils, or D.F.As (in hand by June 30, 2016. and, no earlier than June 30, 2011) for the position as Fellow.
The Fellow will receive a two-year appointment. Postdoctoral Fellows pursue their own continuing research in association with a senior faculty mentor appointed by the Steering Committee at Washington University. Over the course of their two-year appointment, they will also teach three undergraduate courses and collaborate in leading an interdisciplinary seminar on theory and methods for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the humanities and interpretive social sciences.
