With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Humanities Research Center (HRC) at Rice University will award two postdoctoral fellowships to junior scholars who will participate in the 2018-19 Rice Seminar: Wastes: Histories and Futures. This seminar approaches waste not merely as a noun but as a verb and thus as a process, a system of use, a nexus of interconnection, and a set of relations. Waste is not merely an assemblage of things to be analyzed but a set of activities and impulses to be addressed. Culminating in in a multi-disciplinary, multi-authored open-access publication on histories and futures of waste, this seminar will constitute a working group of thinkers across arts, architecture, humanities and social sciences to consider various rubrics of waste. 

This is a full-time, benefits eligible, one-year appointment, renewable for a second year, with an annual salary of $55,000 and allowances for research and relocation to Houston.

Applicants from any humanistic discipline or interdiscipline are eligible to apply and must have received a PhD between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2018.
