The Columbia Society of Fellows in the Humanities, with grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the William R. Kenan Trust, will appoint a number of postdoctoral fellows in the humanities for the academic year 2018 – 2019. Fellows newly appointed for 2018 – 2019 must have received their Ph.D. between January 1, 2016 and July 1, 2018.
Fellows are appointed as Postdoctoral Research Scholars (Mellon Fellows) in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities and as Lecturers in appropriate departments at Columbia University. The one-year Fellowship renews automatically for a second and a third year.
In addition to teaching and research, the duties of Fellows include planning a weekly Thursday Lecture Series, which is open for attendance to members of the University community, and participation in the intellectual life of the Society and of the department with which the Fellow is affiliated. The Society also co-sponsors conferences and special events planned by Fellows around their special interests.
The Fellowship stipend for 2018 – 2019 is $63,000. Medical benefits are provided, and subsidized housing is available. There is a $7,000 research allowance per annum.
