Mellon Fellowships for Assistant Professors

The School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study, with the support of the Andrew Mellon Foundation, has established a program of one year memberships for assistant professors at universities and colleges in the United States and Canada to support promising young scholars who have embarked on professional careers. While at the Institute they will be expected to engage exclusively in scholarly research and writing. Three appointments will be made for the academic year 2009-2010. Appointments will be for one full year and will carry all the privileges of Membership at the Institute for Advanced Study. The stipend will match the combined salary and benefits at the Member's home institution at the time of application. The School is interested in all fields of historical research, but is concerned principally Greek and Roman civilization, the history of Europe, the Islamic world, East Asian studies, the history of art, the history of science, and modern international relations.
