Omohundro Institute Fellows

Filed under: The Academy — John Maass @ 1:13 pm

The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture offers annually a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in any area of early American studies.

This particular fellowship will commence on July 1, 2007. The institute’s field of interest encompasses all aspects of the lives of North America’s indigenous and immigrant peoples during the colonial, Revolutionary, and early national periods of the United States and the related histories of Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America, the British Isles, Europe, and Africa, from the sixteenth century to approximately 1815. Fellows devote most of their time to research and writing, work closely with members of the editorial staff, and participate in colloquia and other scholarly activities of the institute. Fellows will hold a concurrent appointment as assistant professor in the appropriate department at the College of William and Mary and teach a total of six semester hours during the two-year term. Institute fellows also have the option of spending a summer at the Huntington Library on a full grant within five years of their residency in Williamsburg. For the calendar year 2008, the fellow will be supported principally by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through its program of fellowships at independent research institutions. During that year he or she will be designated both an NEH and an Omohundro Institute fellow.  In addition to a beginning stipend of $40,000, the fellowship provides office, research, and computer facilities as well as some funds for travel to conferences and research centers. Applicants must have completed the Ph.D. by the date the fellowship begins (July 1), and must be U.S. citizens or have lived in the U.S. for the three years preceding the fellowship award (required for NEH funding). Applicants must not have previously published a scholarly book or have entered into a contract for the publication of a scholarly monograph.  Deadline: Nov. 1st.
