Dartmouth is pleased to accept applications for two postdoctoral
fellowships in the humanities and humanistic social sciences from
Fall 2018 to the end of Spring 2020. These fellowships foster the

department(s) or program(s) in each year of their residency. At

The appointed fellows will enjoy full use of such college
resources as the library, computing center, the Leslie Center for
the Humanities, Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social
Sciences, the Dickey Center for International Understanding, the
Hood Museum of Art, and the Hopkins Center.
The 2016-2018 fellows received an annual stipend of
$57,528 plus benefits, an annual research allowance of $2,000,
and a first-year-only computer allowance of $2,500. The terms for
the 2018-2020 fellows will be similar.
Applicants for the 2018-2020 fellowships must have completed a
Ph.D. no earlier than January 1, 2016. Candidates who do not yet
hold a Ph.D. but expect to by June 30, 2018 should supply a letter
from their home institution corroborating such a schedule.
Applications for the 2018-2020 fellowship must be received on
Interfolio on or before October 1, 2017.
