Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry: A Postdoctoral Program in the Humanities
and Social Sciences
Deadline: December 1, 2006

Washington University announces the sixth year of an Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Program designed to encourage
interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching across the humanities and social
sciences. Beginning in September of 2001 the Fellowship Program has brought
to Washington University new and recent Ph.D.s who wish to strengthen their
own advanced training and to participate in the university's ongoing
interdisciplinary programs and seminars. The Postdoctoral Fellows receive
two-year appointments with stipends; for the 2006-07 academic year the
annual stipend will be $40,700. Fellows will outline a plan for their own
continuing research to be pursued with a senior faculty mentor from
Washington University. Over the course of their two-year appointment,
fellows will teach three undergraduate courses and collaborate during a
spring term in leading a seminar in the theory and methods of
interdisciplinary research.

There is no application form; applicants should submit a cover letter, a
description of their research program (no more than three single-spaced
pages), a brief proposal for the seminar in theory and methods, a curriculum
vitae, and three letters of recommendation. All materials must be submitted
in paper copy.
