Beschreibung CHI Visiting Fellows Program

The Center for Humanities and Information at The Pennsylvania State University seeks up to three visiting fellows for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years.

Taking “information” in its broadest possible senses, the Center aims to bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary group of scholars who read and think widely across fields, geographical space, and historical time. Fellowships are awarded at two levels: Senior Fellowships, appropriate for scholars employed in tenure-track positions at any level, are for one year, and carry no teaching obligation; Junior (postdoctoral) Fellowships are for two years, and require fellows to teach one course per year. Salaries for both Senior and Junior Fellows are $50,000; support also includes research/travel funding and a benefits package. Fellows have access to extensive research design support, as well as to grant-writing and job market workshops, career mentoring, and archival/library support and research consultation. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Penn State’s University Park campus and to participate in the Center’s weekly lunches and lecture series.

Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent scholarly credentials (obtained by July 30, 2015) and a record of peer-reviewed work. Emerging scholars as well as senior scholars are encouraged to apply. Applicants from all parts of the world are welcome; U.S. citizenship is not a requirement. CHI also encourages co-applications from groups of two or more people working on a single project. At least one Fellow each year should have a background in or a research project oriented towards library research.

Screening of applications will begin January 15, 2015, although all applications will be considered until the search is concluded. To apply, upload a letter of application, a CV (please include names/emails of three references), and a writing sample of 25-30pp, electronically at Applicants for Junior Fellowships should also upload a one-page description of an undergraduate course they might teach in their field of expertise.
