The Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) offers residential postdoctoral fellowships in Hellenic Studies for the 2024-25 academic year.  Fellows are appointed for a term of up to eighteen weeks in the fall (September 4, 2024 to January 8, 2025) or the spring (January 22, 2025 to May 28, 2025). During this time, recipients are expected to be in residence at the CHS and to devote full time to their study projects without undertaking any other major activities.  

Fellowships include a stipend, housing at the CHS, and subsidized health insurance. Additional support is available for professional travel and other research expenses. The CHS will also assist with the fellow’s travel expenses to and from Washington. All fellows, regardless of the term of their fellowship, receive an appointment for one year, beginning in July, which provides them with full access to the resources of the Harvard library system.

The purpose of the residential fellowship program is to encourage and support scholarship of the highest quality on topics related to ancient Greek civilization (e.g., archaeology, art history, epigraphy, history, literary criticism, philology, philosophy, pedagogical applications, reception, and interdisciplinary studies). The program aims to foster interaction among researchers from diverse backgrounds and regions of the world. Accordingly, the CHS welcomes projects with a traditional basis in Classics and those that adopt collaborative or interdisciplinary approaches to the field of Hellenic studies drawn from fields across the humanities, social sciences, and/or natural sciences. 

In addition to supporting scholars working independently, the CHS also welcomes applications from individuals engaged in collaborative research projects (such as co-written or co-edited volumes, digital databases, or software tools). 

Prerequisites for fellowships are a Ph.D. degree in Classics or a related field. Applicants must have defended their degree before July 1, 2023.
