Humanities: The Mellon-funded interdisciplinary program, “The Atlantic Imagination in the Age of Romanticism,” invites applications for a post-doctoral fellowship in the Humanities at University of California, Los Angeles for 2008-09. The program’s primary focal point is 1785-1848, although its interests extend beyond those dates in both directions. The fellowship carries a salary of $45,000 (plus benefits). The fellow would be expected to teach 2 courses a year and to participate in an ongoing series of lectures and seminars with distinguished visiting scholars whose ultimate objective is to help transform the way in which the humanities are taught at UCLA. We invite applications from scholars in the humanities who will have received their doctoral degrees by July 1, 2008 (but no earlier than 2003).

Applications should include a statement of purpose, a curriculum vitae, a writing sample of no more than 25 pages and 3 letters of recommendation; they should be postmarked by March 1, 2008 and addressed to Prof. Saree Makdisi, UCLA Department of English, 149 Humanities Building, Los Angeles, California 90095. UCLA is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer.
