Lawrence Fellows POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS
Lawrence Fellows in the Liberal Arts and Sciences are postdoctoral positions for recent Ph.D.s (or M.Mus./MFAs) who seek to develop a record of excellence in teaching and research in a liberal arts college setting. A detailed description of the program is available at www.lawrence. edu/dept/fellows. Lawrence Fellows appointments will be offered on a competitive basis for academic year 2008-09. Initial appointments are for 2 years, with a reduced teaching load (three courses in the first year and four in the second year) to provide time for continued scholarship or artistic achievement. Fellows also participate in a faculty development program that fosters excellence in teaching and scholarship. Lawrence encourages Fellows to engage in tutorials and research projects with undergraduates, as well as teaching and research collaborations with faculty. These full-time fellowships carry a stipend of $35,000 per year, plus benefits, and a $2500 annual fund to support research, travel, and other initiatives.
