Doctoral and post-Doctoral Fellowship at Darthmouth College

The Jewish Studies Program at Dartmouth College is offering doctoral and post-doctoral fellowship to people affiliated with the ZJS. The fellowships are for one term of residence, ten to twelve weeks, during one of the four regular teaching terms at Dartmouth (fall, winter, spring, summer). The fellowship offers a stipend of $3,000, plus office space, a library card that can also be used at the Harvard libraries, photocopying and other office needs, and so forth. Each fellow will be expected to attend the occasional lectures and seminars sponsored by the Program, and to present his or her research to a group of faculty and students. The faculty at Dartmouth look forward to meeting each fellow and offering mentorship.

In addition, we will offer one or two fellowships of $5,000 for a teaching assistant. The assistant will be assigned to one faculty member and will be expected to attend undergraduate classes, grade student examinations, organize assigned readings, and so forth.

To apply for either fellowship and for more information, please send your CV and a brief letter describing your research to Professor Susannah Heschel, Chair, Jewish Studies Program:
