Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships in Digital Humanities

PriceLab Post doctoral Fellowships At University of Pennsylvania for International Students 2018/2019

The Price Lab at the University of Pennsylvania is pleased to invite  applications for the 2018/2019 Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships in Digital Humanities USA. Only eligible persons that have met with the eligibility criteria will be considered for the program

The Mellon Fellow will be affiliated with both the School of Arts and Sciences and the Penn Libraries, and will participate in the biweekly Price Lab Mellon Seminar. The fellow will pursue their own research project, presenting this work at the seminar, while also contributing to team-based projects at the Lab, and teaching one DH course during the year in the undergraduate College. (While the application requires a brief course description, actual specifications of the class will be worked out next spring with the Price Lab’s Managing Director.)

Type: Postdoctoral Fellowships

Eligible Fields: The PhD is the only eligible terminal degree. MFAs and other doctorates such as EdD are ineligible. In addition to scholars from the core humanities disciplines, those in related fields such as anthropology and the history of science are eligible to apply. Additional educational background in programming, library sciences, computer graphics, computational linguistics, or other fields relevant to digital humanities research is desirable but not required.

Value of Fellowship: The Mellon DH Postdoctoral Fellowships carries an annual stipend of $58,350 plus single-coverage health insurance (fellows are responsible for coverage of any dependents).
