The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an international learned society
and research institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, invites postdoctoral
scholars and nontenured junior faculty to apply for research fellowships for
the 2006-2007 year. The Academy is interested in proposals that relate to
its current projects in the following program areas: Humanities & Culture,
Science & Global Security, Social Policy & American Institutions, and
Education. For more information on these studies, please visit the Academy's
website (www.amacad.org/projects.aspx). Projects that address American
cultural, social, or political issues from the founding period to the
present are especially welcome, as are studies that consider developments in
America from a multidisciplinary and/or comparative perspective. In
conjunction with its 225th anniversary, the Academy has launched a major
archival initiative to preserve its historic papers and invites proposals
that will draw upon these holdings as well. Visiting Scholars are expected
to participate in conferences, seminars, and events at the Academy while
advancing their independent research; they must be in residence during their
fellowship year. Terms of Award: $35,000 stipend for post-doctoral scholars;
up to $50,000 for junior faculty (not to exceed one-half of salary). For
