Mellon post-doc @MIT 2012-2014

From the Duke Funding Alert:

MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences awards two fellowships each year to promising young scholars working at the intersection of humanities disciplines, or between humanities and other disciplines. This Fellowship is especially intended for scholars who work in more than one specialty within the humanities, or bridging from the humanities to science, technology, or architecture.

Applicants must designate the academic unit in which they would like to be located. Units at MIT include Anthropology, History, Literature, Foreign Languages and Literatures, Political Science, Writing and Humanistic Studies, Comparative Media Studies, Music and Theater Arts, and the Program in Science, Technology and Society. Appointments will be for two years, effective July 1, 2012. Fellows will teach one course in Spring 2013 and one per semester the following year, and will be in residence at MIT during this time.
