Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The University of Pittsburgh Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences is offering approximately five postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities and social sciences for the academic year 2015-2016. Fellows will teach one course each semester, complete scholarly work, and participate in the academic and intellectual communities of the departments with which they are affiliated and across the Dietrich School.  Within the Dietrich School, rich opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange are available in the Humanities Center, the World History Center and in a number of vibrant multidisciplinary programs.

We invite applications from qualified candidates in the humanities and social sciences who have completed the oral defense at the time of application and who will graduate with the PhD by August 2015.  Individuals who graduated before September 1, 2013 are not eligible; there will be no exceptions to these criteria. The annual stipend will be $45,000. Fellows may apply for an additional one-year renewal. 

Applications must be received by 5 p.m. EST on February 13, 2015.  Letters of recommendation must be received by 5 p.m. EST on February 20, 2015.  No exceptions to deadlines are granted.  We expect to announce the awards by April 15, 2015. 

The University of Pittsburgh is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and educator. Women, minorities, and international candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
