[ Fellowship/s ]

The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute proposes to award two Polonsky Postdoctoral Fellowships in any field of the Humanities or Social Sciences, for a period of up to five years, beginning October 1, 2009. Application deadline: April 20, 2009.

The Fellowships offer an annual stipend of $40,000. Yearly renewal of the Fellowships will be contingent upon demonstrated progress in research. Fellows will be expected to work on their research at the Institute for consecutive years during the period of the award.

Although these are postdoctoral fellowships, other candidates may be considered in those fields in which a doctoral degree is not a prerequisite for career progress.

Candidates should submit to the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute at a 3-5 page statement of research plans; a 3-page summary of previous research; one published article or equivalent unpublished work; a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications; along with names and contact information for three referees.
