Five one-year Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania are available to junior scholars in the humanities who are no more than five years out of their doctorate. Applications are due by November 1, 2022.

Preference will be given to candidates not yet in tenure-track positions whose proposals are interdisciplinary, who have not previously enjoyed use of the resources of the University of Pennsylvania, and who would particularly benefit from and contribute to Penn’s intellectual life.

The 2023–2024 Fellowship appointment is twelve months (July 1, 2023–June 30, 2024) and carries a stipend of $62,750 plus a $3000 research fund and single-coverage health insurance (fellows are responsible for coverage for any dependents). Fellows teach one undergraduate course in addition to conducting their research.

The programs of the Wolf Humanities Center are conceived through yearly topics that invite broad interdisciplinary collaboration. For the 2023–2024 academic year, the topic will be Revolution. The Wolf Humanities Center is keen to support projects that contribute to the dismantling of all forms of racial, gender, and other discrimination as they exist within the humanities. Such efforts can take an infinite variety of forms, and the center encourages candidates to include in the course of their applications an explanation of how their scholarship contributes to this effort if it does.
