Dartmouth Postdoctoral Fellowships



Postdoctoral Fellowships

These fellowships foster the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees, by permitting them to pursue their research while gaining mentored experience as teachers and members of the departments and/or programs in which they are housed. The program also benefits Dartmouth by complementing existing curricula with underrepresented fields.

Postdoctoral Fellows are individuals at the early stages of their careers who demonstrate exceptional promise as scholar-teachers. There are two categories of Postdoctoral Fellows: Society Fellows and Affiliate Fellows.

Society Fellows are appointed by the Dean of the Faculty, following a competitive process. Society Fellows are expected to pursue their research, teach one course annually, and contribute to the Society’s programs (monthly colloquia, dinners, visiting lectures, etc.).

Stipend and resources

Society Fellowships normally run for 34 months, beginning on September 1 and ending on June 30th of the final year. Fellows arriving in 2015 will receive a monthly stipend of $4,600 plus benefits, and $4,000 annually to support computing, travel and research needs.

The departments and/or programs where fellows are appointed Lecturers have the primary responsibility for providing office and working space for Fellows, as well as access to other research needs or equipment. The Society helps to assure the cooperation of departments in providing the requisite setting for the scholarly and creative work of each Fellow.

Application and process

Applications are accepted through Interfolio [] and must be received on or before October 15. Incomplete dossiers are not reviewed. In addition to a completed application, applicants must arrange for the submission of three letters of reference, a curriculum vitae, and academic transcripts. Applicants should submit a personal statement (of no longer than 2,000 words) outlining their completed research (including dissertation), work in progress, professional goals and plans for publication, and any other information relevant to their candidacy.

Fellowship applications are evaluated by the Faculty Fellows, who make recommendations for appointments to the Dean of the Faculty and Associate Deans of the Faculty for the Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and Interdisciplinary & International Programs. Strong fellowship applications are circulated to relevant departments and programs, which report back to the Society’s Faculty Fellows. This committee then makes recommendations to the Dean of the Faculty, who in consultation with the Associate Deans appoints the Society Fellows.
