Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies will award one full-time Postdoctoral Fellowship for the 2022-2023 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 2022-23. This provides the fellows greater autonomy in shaping coherent scholarly forums around matters of interest to them. Fellows will convene in April or May 2022, shortly after the awards have been announced, to begin the planning process. Eisenberg fellows have the opportunity to workshop an article, chapter, or other project with the institute community during their fellowship term.announced, to begin the planning process.  

The application deadline is March 25, 2022. See application (below) for additional details and eligibility.
