Harvard Warren Center for North American History Post-doc Fellowship

THE CHARLES WARREN CENTER for NORTH AMERICAN HISTORY at Harvard is accepting applications for a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in "Global American Studies". Click here for more information and to apply.

For this two-year postdoc, we seek scholars with research interests in Global American Studies: the history of the United States in the world, and the world in the United States. Applications are welcomed from scholars with a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including the literary, who bring a historical perspective to topics such as empire, migration, race, indigeneity, and ethnicity, and whose work investigates and/or interprets the history and experience in the United States of native peoples, or peoples of African, Asian, or Hispanic descent.
The Global American Studies postdoc, distinct from the Center's long-standing faculty fellowship, is presently in its second year (the first with a full cohort of four). The fellowship is for two years (a one-year appointment, automatically renewed for a second year only); two new fellows are sought in each application cycle. The doctorate must be in hand before the fellowship commences on July 1, and the program is available for up to four years after receipt of the Ph.D. The awardees will have this opportunity to develop and refine their doctoral work before the first tenure-track position, and also will teach one course. The fellowship includes a conference each spring focused on the awardees' work, and organized faculty mentorship.
