The Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign seeks to hire two Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellows in the Humanities for two-year appointments starting in Fall 2013.
Fellows spend the two-year term in residence at Illinois; conduct research on the proposed project; and teach two courses per year in the appropriate academic department. Fellows also participate in activities related to their research at the IPRH, in the teaching department, and on the Illinois campus. Each Post-Doctoral Fellow gives a public lecture on his or her research.
The search for Mellon Fellows is open to scholars in all humanities disciplines, but we seek applicants whose work falls into one of the following broad subject areas:

The fellowship carries a $45,000 annual stipend, a $2,000 research account, and a comprehensive benefits package. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must have received their Ph.D. between January 1, 2008 and August 31, 2012.
