Position

Details

Title Mahindra Humanities Center Postdoctoral Fellow
School Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Department/Area Mahindra Humanities Center
Position Description

Mahindra Humanities Center Postdoctoral Fellowships will be awarded to support projects that share the Center’s commitment to interdisciplinarity and internationalism. The Center welcomes applications from all fields within the humanities and the allied social sciences. Despite the great diversity among humanities disciplines, they are joined in their commitment to the spirit of informed and independent interpretation—for individuals and groups—as a process crucial to making judgments about the relationship between facts and values. The Mahindra Humanities Center has taken on the role of exploring this important ethical and epistemological dimension of the humanities.

Fellows will be joined at the Center by postdoctoral fellows from Germany, who will be coming as part of a collaboration between the Mahindra Humanities Center and the Volkswagen Foundation. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Harvard for the term of the fellowship.

Basic Qualifications

Applicants for 2013-14 fellowships must have received the Ph.D. after May 2010. Applicants without the Ph.D. must demonstrate that they will receive the Ph.D. in or before August 2013. Completed applications must be postmarked by November 15, 2012.
