TitelFellowships: Institute for Historical Studies UT-Austin
BeschreibungThe Institute for Historical Studies at UT-Austin welcomes applications for one semester and full year residential fellowships from junior, mid-career and senior faculty. The fellowships provide full salary replacement. The theme for 2009-10 is Global Borders, and we seek fellows whose work explores the theme in a wide variety of creative ways, conceptual as well as geographical.

The application deadline is January 15, 2009.

Resident fellows

The Institute will offer four research fellowships for the academic year 2009-2010. We invite applications for senior, mid-career, and junior fellows. We will aim to provide fellowship funding that matches salaries from regularly-held appointments.


Fellowships are not restricted to historians, but projects must have significant historical content. We seek fellows in three different categories:

1. Senior Fellowships for applicants who are tenured full professors with international reputations and a substantial publishing record.
2. Mid-career Fellowships for applicants at the mid-career level, whether tenured associates or senior assistant professors, who have commensurate publishing records.
3. Junior Fellowships for applicants who have completed and defended their dissertations no more than five years before the start of the fellowship. Junior fellows must have their PhD.s in hand no later than 30 June 2009.

Expectations for Fellows

Fellows must be resident in Austin during the term of their appointment and are expected to participate actively and regularly in the Institute's programming. Each fellow will present a pre-circulated paper at the Institute’s workshops. Fellows may also be invited to participate in other programming at UT.
