The Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) offers a limited number of residential postdoctoral fellowships in Hellenic Studies for the summer of 2024. This short-term fellowship is for six weeks (June 11 – July 23, 2024). 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.
Summer fellowships include a stipend and housing at the CHS. The CHS will also assist with the fellow’s travel expenses to and from Washington. All fellows receive an appointment for one year, beginning in May, 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).
This fellowship is intended for those postdoctoral scholars for whom a fellowship during the academic year is unfeasible. We especially welcome applications from non-tenure-track faculty, independent scholars, and faculty from small departments, for whom a leave of absence during the academic year would jeopardize their program.
Prerequisites for fellowships are a Ph.D. degree in Classics or a related field. Applicants must have defended their degree before July 1, 2023.
