The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities of Haverford College invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities to begin Fall 2018 (see https://www.haverford.edu/hcah/center/programs-and-grants/mellon-postdoctoral-fellowship for details). We seek a scholar interested in the comparative history, social and cultural impact, and artistic representation of war. Candidates should have broad theoretical and interdisciplinary interests.

During the first year of the program, the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow will participate in a year-long faculty seminar, led by Professor Paul Jakov Smith (History and East Asian Studies), that will bring together faculty with a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Applicants should make clear the nature of their potential contributions to this seminar, which will explore how war has been entwined with politics, science, and the material world, and how it is reflected in artistic genres and the written, visual, and oral records of the present and the past. (For a more detailed description, see https://www.haverford.edu/hcah/center/programs-and-grants/faculty-seminars.)

In the second year, the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow will organize and present a spring symposium related to his or her scholarly field funded by the Hurford Center.

During each of the four semesters at Haverford College, the Mellon Fellow will teach one course at the introductory/intermediate or advanced level and engage a diverse student body. Applicants should submit two brief course proposals related to their area of interest, one for a broad-based introductory or intermediate course and the other for a more specialized or advanced course.

Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, two course proposals, and a writing sample of no more than 25 pages, and should arrange to have three confidential letters of recommendation submitted via Interfolio at: https://apply.interfolio.com/46719. Candidates who earned their Ph.D. no earlier than 2013 and have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by the application deadline of January 9, 2018 are eligible to apply.
