The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University invites applications for a post-doctoral fellowship for one year in the history of science and technology, or a related field, with the possibility for renewal for a second year. The Fellowship, which will begin September 1, 2017, will include a $42,000 annual stipend, a $20,000 housing allowance, full medical benefits and assistance with relocation. The research of the successful candidate should be interdisciplinary in nature and complement the work of historians of science already at Gallatin. The successful candidate will advance their own research project, teach two undergraduate courses a year, assist in the execution and development of the NYC History of Science Group, the NYU Science and Society minor and take part in the academic life of NYU and the Gallatin School.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. by time of appointment and have experience teaching at the college or university level. Candidates are requested to submit a curriculum vitae, a research proposal on a topic related to the project (750 words maximum), a sample or samples of writing (i.e., article or book chapter), two course proposals, and two
letters of recommendation.
All application materials must be received by March 1, 2017. All application materials must be submitted electronically here. For questions, please contact Gallatin Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org.
