Applications are not being accepted at this time. The 2014-16 fellowship will be announced in late Fall 2013.
The Dean of Arts & Humanities is now accepting applications for the 2013-15 Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities, established with a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Four new fellows will be appointed for 2013-15, to teach and carry out research in a sponsoring department in the humanities.
Appointment will be for two years as a Visiting Assistant Professor. Should you in the future be appointed to an Assistant Professorship at the University of California, please be advised that your time in the visiting title would count on the tenure clock.
Term of Appointment
For a two-year appointment, effective July 1, 2013, four Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows will be selected from among the applicants. Fellows will be expected to teach one course per semester, for four consecutive semesters (not including summer sessions). Salary will be approximately $61,000 a year, with mid-level benefits. New Fellows will receive a $1,500 computer and technology allowance, and in each year of their appointment, Fellows will receive a flexible research fund of $5,000 to cover such costs as travel and research assistance.
Eligibility and Requirements
This year’s eligible applicants must have received the PhD no earlier than July 1, 2010 and no later than June 30, 2013. UC Berkeley PhDs are not eligible for this fellowship.
Applicants may not hold an appointment in a tenure-track position, and Mellon Fellows may not hold any other appointment during the period of the fellowship. Applications from international scholars are accepted, but fellowship awards are contingent upon eligibility to work legally in the United States. If necessary, Berkeley will sponsor the scholar for a J-1 visa.
The University of California is EO/AA/ADA employer.
