The Center for Humanistic Inquiry (CHI) at Amherst College seeks scholars from across the disciplines for full-time, two-year appointments as CHI Fellows and visiting lecturers. In colloquy with one another and the Amherst faculty, CHI Fellows will explore the theme of “Home.” We invite applications from scholars whose research takes up some aspect of our theme (described in more detail below) from a humanistic perspective.
Fellows will have offices in the center and are expected to be fully in residence during the 2019–2021 academic years and to participate in seminars, conferences, and other programming organized to explore our theme. A Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree is required. Fellows will also teach at least one course during the period of the fellowship.
