The Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Emory University is accepting applications for three Junior/Post-Doctoral fellowships for an academic of study, teaching, and residence in the Center. The FCHI Fellows Program offers research opportunities to those trained in the humanities as traditionally defined and to others seriously interested in humanistic issues; research projects must be humanistic, but fellows may hold the Ph.D. in any discipline. We especially seek applicants and projects that will benefit from and contribute to the interdisciplinary nature of the group of Fellows and the work of the FCHI. Deadline for submissions: February 18, 2010.

Junior Fellows are scholars who, at the beginning of the fellowship year, will be at least three years beyond receipt of the Ph.D., and normally no more than ten (i.e., who received their Ph.D.s before Fall 2007). Post-Doctoral Fellows, who must have the Ph.D. in hand before submission of their applications, are awarded to those who have held the Ph.D. for no more than three years before application for the fellowships (the Ph.D. awarded between Fall 2007 and Fall 2009).

Besides being an active member of the Center’s intellectual agenda through the academic year, Fellows will be expected to offer an upper-level interdisciplinary undergraduate seminar on a subject of their choice during the spring of the fellowship year. Stipends of $40,000 will be offered to Junior and Post-Doctoral Fellows, along with a research budget of $2,000, shared office space in the Center, and library access. The deadline for submission of completed applications is February 18, 2010; awards will be announced in mid-April 2010. Application forms and further information are available from the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at 404-727-6424 or, on the web at, or write to: FCHI, Emory University, 1635 North Decatur Road, Atlanta, GA 30322.
