Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies will award one full-time Postdoctoral Fellowship for the 2019-2020 academic year. This fellowship is designed to provide recent University of Michigan history or joint-History PhDs the opportunity to teach two undergraduate courses while pursuing revisions of their dissertations for publication. This award has been funded by a generous gift from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.

This fellow will form an integral part of the institute community and is expected to participate regularly in institute events. The Postdoctoral Fellow will collaborate with Graduate Student Research Fellows in designing/organizing the Friday workshops presented in 2019-20. This provides the fellows greater autonomy in shaping coherent scholarly forums around matters of interest to them. Fellows will convene in April 2019 shortly after the awards have been announced to begin the planning process.

The application deadline is noon, April 5, 2019. See application (below) for additional details and eligibility.
