One-Year Post-Doctoral Fellowships

The Bill and Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry

Emory University

The Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry of Emory University is accepting post-doctoral applications for 2020-2021.  The FCHI Post-Doctoral Fellowship funds an academic year of study, teaching, and residence at 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.

Post-Doctoral Fellows, who must have the Ph.D. in hand before the submission of their applications, are awarded to those who have held the Ph.D. for no more than six years before receiving the fellowship.

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 $47,000 will be offered to 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 January 15, 2020.  Announcements of awards will begin in mid-April and will continue until all positions are filled.  More information and application instructions are available from the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at 404-727-6424 or, on the web at, or write to: Fox Ctr. for Humanistic Inquiry, Emory University, 1635 North Decatur Road, Atlanta, GA 30322.
