The Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry of Emory University is accepting applications for one Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Poetics for an academic year of study, teaching, and residence in the Center. Funded by a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Fellowship will highlight the importance of the ongoing critical, theoretical, and creative engagements with poetry across Emory University, as well as marking the emergence of the Robert W. Woodruff Library’s Stuart A. Rose Manuscripts, Archives, and Rare Books Library as a major center for research in poetry. For more information on the Rose Library, please see <>. We especially seek applicants and projects that will benefit from and contribute to the interdisciplinary nature of the group of Fellows and the work of the FCHI.

Post-Doctoral Fellows, who must have the Ph.D. in hand before submission of their applications, are awarded to those who have held the Ph.D. for no more than six years before receiving the fellowship.

Besides being an active member of the Center’s intellectual agenda through the academic year, Fellows will be expected to offer an upper-level interdisciplinary undergraduate seminar on a subject of their choice during the spring of the fellowship year. Stipends of $47,000 will be offered to Post-Doctoral Fellows, along with a research budget of $2,000, shared office space in the Center, and library access. The deadline for submissions of completed applications is January 17, 2018. Announcements of awards will begin in mid-April and will continue until all positions are filled. More information and application instructions are available from the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at 404-727-6424 or, on the web at, or write to: Fox Ctr. for Humanistic Inquiry, Emory University, 1635 North Decatur Road, Atlanta, GA 30322.
