Dartmouth College invites applications for the Dean’s Pre-to-Postdoctoral Dissertation Fellowship in Asian American Studies. The Fellowship supports scholars working in any disciplinary or interdisciplinary field on topics related to Asian American Studies. Fellows are selected on the basis of academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and demonstrated commitment to educational diversity. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose work complements and can be supported by current faculty at the College Applications from candidates who are underrepresented in their fields are especially welcome.
This is a two-year residential fellowship. Fellows are expected to complete the dissertation before the second year and then transition to a postdoctoral appointment. Throughout, fellows are expected to pursue research activities while participating fully in the intellectual life of their home department and the College. During the second year of residency, fellows teach one course. The first year, fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $36,000 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses; as a postdoctoral fellow in the second year, the stipend is approximately $55,200 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses (exact funding levels for 2019-21 will be set at the time of offer).
Dean’s Fellows are part of the Provost’s Fellowship Program, a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars who share a commitment to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers.
