Positions with 2022 Application Deadlines[]

ACLS Fellowship - Deadline 28 Sept. 2022[]

ACLS invites research proposals from scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences. Given the disproportionate effect the pandemic’s social and economic disruptions have had on emerging, independent, and untenured scholars, ACLS will continue in the 2022-23 competition year to offer these fellowships solely to untenured scholars who have earned the PhD within eight years of the application deadline. ACLS welcomes applications from scholars without faculty appointments and scholars off the tenure track.

Updates:

- Seems like acceptances will go out any day now if they haven’t already. Any news? [2/27]

-In the past few years it seems offers were always sent out in late Feb. Can I assume that if we haven't heard of anything by now it automatically means rejection? I have written to them asking about the timeline of notification but no reply. [2/28]

- I'm also waiting. No news yet. [2/28]

- Same here. No news. [3/1] x2

- I haven’t heard anything. I was awarded a Diss Fellowship from ACLS in 2016 and I remember them being very strict about posting anything about acceptance anywhere on the web. I’m a selective rule-follower so still posted to the Wiki, but others may respect their wishes.

-I checked the Wiki pages for previous years and acceptances typically went out in late Feb and mass rejection on 3/23 or 24, after the contracts were sealed. So be prepared for one month's torment in vain. Some named award sent out acceptances and rejections around the same time. Don't know why the general fellowships handle things differently. They could easily notify those who are not on the waitlist asap.

- Awarded Fellowship [3/2]

-Congrats! And thanks for bringing closure to the rest of us [3/2]

-(3/22) Rejection received

-(3/23) It looks like acceptances and rejections have both gone out. I haven't heard anything yet. Does this mean I could be on the waitlist? Or do they send out the rejections in batches?

Austrian Academy of Sciences - Deadline: May 1, 2023[]

12/9 - Communication with program staff re: letters of rec requests on the application in Academic Jobs Online (AJO) system but not sent to applicants via email. "AJO made some updates in the system that changed application statuses this week. At this moment, no further action is required on your part. Our selection committee is currently still reviewing applications." Sounds like a false alarm if you've only seen the request for recommendations in AJO and haven't been notified via email.

1/19/23 - Generic rejection email received x2

-- to the poster above, had you received the rec letter request?

1/19/23 - Received request to interview for the program (interviews with the Selection Committee and potential host unit department)

-– also curious about this. got a request for letters a while back but neither a rejection nor an interview invite. anyone else in the same boat?

--I'm in the same position (request for letters but no interview or rejection)

  • 1/24 Invited to interview with members of the selection committee and host department

-- anyone else out there get request for letters but still no rejection or interview? congrats to those who advanced

-- Yes, as of 2/3 I got the request for letters but no rejection and no interview. During the FAQ session back in the fall they did say that some applicants would be asked to interview or provide a dissertation abstract or a writing sample. I'm assuming a lot of this is based on individual CAS departments and programs which may explain the discrepancy in notifications?

-- 2/3 found out that the last of the candidate interviews are scheduled for next week (week of 2/6)

- - thanks for the intel. Not looking good lol

--2/17 Offer made and accepted

-- Congratulations to all who got an offer. Still in the 'no reply' camp (2/21).

University of Basel, eikones: Three NOMIS Postdoctoral Fellowships - Deadline 17 Oct. 2022[]

eikones – Center for the Theory and History of the Image at the University of Basel

The center invites applications from outstanding junior and senior researchers in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences for three one-year NOMIS Fellowships beginning September 1, 2023.

Since 2005, eikones has served as a center for graduate and postgraduate research on images. The center is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of images as instruments of human knowledge and cultural practices. It investigates the functions and effects of images throughout history and in our contemporary society from analytical and empirical perspectives.

The NOMIS Fellowship Program supports groundbreaking research projects related to how images act as models or paradigms in scientific and aesthetic contexts. We are interested in the fundamental ways images serve as instruments for making complex structures visible and accessible to interpretation. In both aesthetic and experimental settings, images often assume an exemplary character, aiding epistemic and learning processes. They fulfill evidential, didactic, and symbolic functions, and thereby produce different forms of knowledge. Relevant topics of research might consider, for example, the history and theory of imaging techniques in the natural sciences; the ideals and stereotypes that shape social contexts and political discussions; or the formation and dissolution of canons, iconographies, character types, and styles in the arts. On the methodological side, the projects should be rooted in a specific research field, and reflect on the relation between their individual discipline and image studies.

The fellowships will allow outstanding scholars and scientists to pursue their research free from teaching and administrative obligations. Fellows receive a generous salary, travel funds, conference funds, and access to excellent academic infrastructure. Applications will be selected based on scholarly achievement and promise, and relevance to the topic of images as models. Preference will be given to excellent young scholars with innovative approaches. Fellows are expected to be in residence at eikones in Basel and to participate in select institutional events.

Application Requisites

·       Applicants must possess a doctoral degree.

·       Applicants must have previously have published either a monograph (e.g. their dissertation) OR three articles in journals or collected volumes.

·       Applicants from all academic fields whose research relates to images as models are invited to apply.

·       Applications may be submitted in either German or English.

Application Materials

1.    Cover letter

2.    CV

3.    Contact details for two references (no letters)

4.    Copy of doctoral diploma

5.    Project description (2–3 pages plus references)

6.    Published writing sample (circa 20 pages)

Please submit applications by October 17, 2022 using the online portal provided by the University of Basel. Please upload two files only: all materials listed above (1.-6.) in A SINGLE PDF FILE via the field “resume” as well as an extra cover letter (1.) via the field “cover letter”. Applications that do not conform to this format or received after this date will not receive consideration. Inquiries should be sent to [[4]].

University of Utah (USA: UT) - Postdoc in Place Effects on Health - Review Begins March 1, 2023[]

Qualifications/Responsibilities: Applicants must have their doctoral degree in epidemiology, sociology, geography, economics, or a related field by the start of the position. Expertise in areas of social, structural, and/or geographical determinants of health is strongly preferred, as is experience with longitudinal and spatial analysis. Duties of the postdoctoral associate include preparation of area-level data, data analysis, and manuscript writing. The position will entail working closely with an interdisciplinary team of investigators from the fields of lifespan development, population health, sociology, geography, and biostatistics. The associate will engage in self-directed research and team science, as they take the lead on one to two manuscripts per year and co-author several additional ones. Advanced research training and access to University resources will be provided to help the associate prepare for a research career.

Application Procedure: Submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of three references, and two relevant publications or preprints at https://utah.peopleadmin.com/postings/144226. Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2023 and will continue until filled. Position starts July 1, 2023, but this date is flexible. For inquiries, please contact the primary supervisor Dr. David Curtis at [[9]].

A second postdoctoral associate position is available at Hong Kong University. This position is linked to this research project and has similar qualifications and expectations, but the employer and employment site will be Hong Kong University. Direct inquiries to the site faculty mentor, Ming Wen, at [[10]].

Related Information: The project is NIH-funded (by the National Institute on Aging) and examines how place-based features influence midlife mortality risk among the working-age population, especially from cardiometabolic conditions as well as drug, suicide, and alcohol-related causes. Recent mortality trends have generated considerable attention, and the underlying structural forces are partly known to include: reduced opportunities for working-age adults without a college degree; an increase in prescribed opioids from 1999-2011 and recent surge in availability of synthetic opioids; and obesogenic built environments and social norms. Yet, the specific mechanisms linking these structural forces to health and mortality are not well understood. Moreover, little is known about the interconnections between structural forces and features of the social, built, and natural environments as they relate to health. The project draws from two unique datasets linked with multidimensional area- and place-based data that will enable us to overcome limitations of prior research on area effects on health. First, the Midlife in the United States (MIDUS) study includes three waves of rich psychosocial and health assessments from 1995 through 2014 and more than twenty years of mortality follow-up. Second, the Utah Population Database (UPDB) includes Utah death records, covering the period of 2000 through 2020, linked within families and to an extensive set of state administrative and health records. While MIDUS provides national scope and breadth of psychosocial processes, UPDB will allow for examining rich place-based measures with a large sample of working-age Utahans (N = 1,614,470; 142,330 deaths observed), modeling spatial processes, and considering family risk factors.

The position is in the Department of Family and Consumer Studies (https://www.fcs.utah.edu) at the University of Utah. The University is a PAC-12, Carnegie RU/VH Research University, a member of the Association of American Universities, and Utah’s flagship university. The University is located in beautiful Salt Lake City, which offers an outstanding quality of life in a metropolitan area of 1.5 million residents, nestled in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains. Utah’s great outdoors are close by and offer world class skiing, hiking, and mountain biking. The city is cosmopolitan with theater, arts, sports, entertainment, and nightlife. Salt Lake City has a racially/ethnically diverse population and the 10th highest proportion of LGBTQ residents of metro areas.

Washington University in St. Louis - TRIADS Postdoctoral Fellowship (Transdisciplinary Institute in Applied Data Science)[]

https://jobs.chronicle.com/job/37433703/postdoctoral-fellow-transdisciplinary-institute-in-applied-data-science-triads

Deadline: May 15

The Transdisciplinary Institute in Applied Data Science (TRIADS) at Washington University in St. Louis is seeking applications for a new Postdoctoral Fellows Program for the 2023-2024 academic year. The appointments are for one year with the possibility of renewing for a second year contingent upon satisfactory performance, and the anticipated start date is July 1, 2023. Fellows will receive a salary, benefits, as well as an annual budget to pay for travel costs and research expenses.

The mission of TRIADS is to support transdisciplinary research programs that harness advanced methods and tools in the service of better understanding our world and addressing urgent social issues. We are looking for fellows who are interested in researching critical issues facing society in a collaborative way, including both methodological and applied researchers. We take a broad view of data science and encourage applicants from all research traditions to apply.  Skills of interest include, but are not limited to, novel methods of data collection, data analysis, algorithm design, theoretical modeling, and applied quantitative or qualitative analysis in relevant substantive domains.

Fellows will pursue their own research agenda in a vibrant interdisciplinary intellectual community and connect with mentors in multiple fields. In addition, fellows will be responsible for participating/leading TRIADS activities and honing their professional skills through constructing a new curriculum of workshops and short courses for our community. We are looking for self-motivated scholars who will contribute new ideas and actively seek collaborations with other fellows, faculty, and students across all schools at Washington University.

A core value of TRIADS is to create an open and inclusive intellectual community. We strongly encourage applications from researchers with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities. You can learn more about policies to help postdocs from all backgrounds thrive at Washington University in St. Louis at: https://postdoc.wustl.edu/policies-benefits/

Examples of areas of research

TRIADS Postdoctoral Fellows will collaborate with faculty at Washington University in St. Louis in a wide array of research areas, and the program offers numerous opportunities to engage with the broader data science community at the university and beyond. Successful applicants will be expected to lead their own research agenda while collaborating with others. Some concrete examples of the kinds of research our community is engaged in are listed below.

AI and society: How can AI be better designed to interface with human decisions makers in a manner that takes into account well understood cognitive biases? How do filtering algorithms on social media work to create or remediate polarization in news consumption?

Text, audio, video, and multimodal data: Across the social sciences, scholars are exploring ways to use new forms of data to answer core social science questions. Can we use advances in large language models to better measure important concepts latent in large text corpora? How will “deep fake” technology affect the health of the information ecosystem?

Computational public health: How can we use largescale datasets of environmental factors and health outcomes to understand the geographic disparities in public health outcomes across neighborhoods in American cities? How do historical race-based redlining policies affect public health outcomes today? How can we better incorporate human behavioral constraints into models of contagion in a pandemic?

Geospatial data: Can we combine satellite imagery with data on human movement patterns to understand how physical terrain and political borders affect migration patterns? How do flooding events captured in video data in local municipalities affect the health of local residence?

Race, power, and equity: Issues facing society like structural racism require a broad approach, drawing insights from multiple disciplines and methodological traditions. How are sources of misinformation specifically targeting minority communities, and what steps can be taken to remediate these attempted manipulations? To what extent are racial/ethnic biases present in large language models, and how will this affect the outputs of products built from them?

Advances in survey methodology: Can we use large-scale datasets tracking online behavior to estimate latent public opinion on specific issues while preserving the privacy of participants? Can we better use mobile technologies for both intensive surveys and leveraging passively collected data like location and background audio? Can we use recent advances in machine learning models such as Gaussian process regression to build more flexible estimates of dynamic latent traits?

Washington University in St. Louis is committed to providing a comprehensive and competitive benefits package to our employees. Benefits eligibility is subject to employment status, full-time equivalent (FTE) workload, and weekly standard hours. Please visit our website at https://hr.wustl.edu/benefits/ to view a summary of postdoctoral benefits.

Positions with 2023 Application Deadlines[]

Aix-Marseille Université (FRA) - Two-year Postdoc position in History / History of science and technology / Heritage or museum studies / French or British studies - Deadline: 28 Feb. 2023[]

The Laboratoire d’Études et de Recherche sur le Monde Anglophone, Aix-Marseille University (AMU), is shortly to commence a major academic research project, “Museums and Industry: Long Histories of Collaboration” (MaILHoC).

MaILHoC was a successful 600,000 EUR bid to the ‘heritage, society, and ethics’ call of the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage (JPI CH) administered by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) in France.

Working with partners in the UK, Spain, and Norway, as well as with the thinktank Demos and the University of London Press, the aim of the project is to explore the impacts of industrial patronage – with a particular focus on the ethical dimensions of this relationship – on European museums of science and industry in both comparative and historical context.

The project will compare insights drawn from a wide spread of historical case studies (ranging from the construction of museum galleries to corporate science centres and the organisation of World Expos) with a range of contemporary workshops exploring the ethics of industrial patronage from a variety of perspectives.

Alongside the production of a range of scholarship, MaILHoC will also produce a thinktank style report, and promote a range of debates, discussions and workshops.

This position is based at AMU’s Humanities Faculty in Aix-en-Provence. Travel to archives in France and Britain will be required, as will participation in events organised by the various partners.

As a Postdoctoral Researcher you will bring knowledge and skills from history, history of science and technology, area studies, heritage or museum studies (or similar) to the project.

The strand of the project being developed in Aix will adopt a comparative approach focusing on France and the UK, therefore a high level of linguistic competence in both French and English is essential. You will need to be able to independently identify and master a complex set of archives, and to effectively communicate these findings with a multidisciplinary international team. The ability to work with a range of stakeholders (from curators to policy makers and patrons) and to communicate with a wide variety of public audiences would be ideal.

Main duties

  • Under the supervision of the PI, scoping, selecting, and developing historical case studies examining the impact of industrial patronage on exhibition development, with an emphasis on international events such as World Expos and travelling exhibitions.
  • Working with the other members of the research team to identify connections between the different international strands of research and to develop productive lines of inquiry within the project’s overall framework.
  • Assisting with the development of ethics workshops.
  • Attending regular project meetings and liaising with the other members of the project team, external partners and the project as a whole.
  • Preparing and presenting findings of research activities to colleagues and at academic and practitioner events, including conferences and seminars.
  • Publishing in relevant peer-reviewed publications, as well as contributing to a range of public and internal reports.
  • Contributing to the public engagement activities of the project, including seminars, events, and workshops.

Amherst College Center for Humanistic Inquiry Fellows/ Visiting Lecturers[]

The Center for Humanistic Inquiry (CHI) at Amherst College seeks scholars from across the disciplines for full-time, two-year appointments as CHI Fellows and visiting lecturers.  In colloquy with one another and the Amherst community, CHI Fellows will explore the theme of Political Imagination. We invite applications from scholars whose research and/or creative work takes up some aspect of our theme (described in more detail below).

Amherst College is one of the most diverse liberal arts colleges in the country. Nearly half of our students identify as domestic students of color, and another 11 percent are international, with non-U.S. citizenship; 16 percent are the first members of their families to attend college. Amherst is committed to providing financial aid that meets 100 percent of every student’s demonstrated need, and nearly 60 percent of our students receive financial aid. Our expectation is that the successful candidate will excel at teaching and mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual identity, disability/ability, and religion.

Fellowships include an annual salary of $60,000, an annual $3,000 allowance for professional research support, an office in the center, and additional support for moving expenses.  CHI Fellows are expected to be fully in residence during the 2023–2025 academic years and to participate in seminars, conferences, and other programming organized to explore the theme. Fellows will teach at least one course during the period of the fellowship.

Candidates are asked to submit electronically to http://apply.interfolio.com/123387 a cover letter that addresses the connection between the candidate’s scholarship and the center’s theme, a CV, a one-page research statement, an article- or chapter-length writing sample, and three confidential letters of recommendation addressed to Darryl Harper, director of the CHI.  A Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree is required.  Review of applications will begin on April 24, 2023, and continue until the positions are filled. Applications received by this date will be assured of full consideration.

Political Imagination

Before people can build worlds through political action, they must first imagine those worlds, then help others to do the same. Perhaps they dream of a future utopia, then recruit others into the work of making it real; or maybe they conjure a paradise lost, convincing others to help them restore it. Even people who want society to stay the same must create (and share with others) a compelling vision of the status quo–what it is, what it means, and why we need it. Then, they take action, which must itself be imaginative and compelling.

We invite applications from emerging humanities scholars who study such world-making acts of imagination, and who consider the relationship between such imaginings and political action. Their research might focus on the past, present, or future—and on societies of any kind throughout the world. We welcome projects with interdisciplinary range (e.g., connecting the arts to political theory) and comparative scope (e.g., across periods or subcultures in one society, or between societies), but we also encourage applications from scholars whose goal is to establish the special significance of tools from one academic field—or one era, culture, or social order—to understanding how the political imagination works.

Either way, the goal is to contribute to a trans-disciplinary discussion of two interrelated phenomena: (1) the political force of fictions, dreams, visions, and suppositions and (2) the imaginative work involved in building and sustaining political communities, identities, and institutions.

Amherst is a private undergraduate liberal arts college, with 1,800 students and more than two hundred faculty members.  Located in the Connecticut River Valley of western Massachusetts, Amherst participates with Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts in the Five-College Consortium.  Amherst College is an equal opportunity employer and encourages persons of all genders, persons of color, and persons with disabilities to apply.

WORD ON THE STREET


There are some fellowships not listed above, like Princeton and Harvard SOF, Cornell Klarman Fellowship, etc. Let’s create an update below;

Applied X 8

UMBC

Anyone heard anything from UMBC? According to their own timeline, they were contacting people in early to mid-November to invite them for on-campus interviews.

  • 11/21: Rejection received


HARVARD SOCIETY OF FELLOWS

  • 10/23- Harvard SOF should be sending out interviews by now. Any news?
    • Harvard SoF now interview in waves throughout the Fall. Had one in mid Oct with about 10 days notice. They keep interviewing until Dec.
    • 10/27 interview scheduled. Yes 10days.
    • 10/27 Can you guys tell the format?
    • 11/06- Harvard SOF interview schedule
    • 11/07 Can anyone here w/an interview scheduled tell us how they were contacted by Harvard (i.e. email, snailmail, phone call)? Many thanks.
    • 11/08 I interviewed yesterday. They call first and then follow up by email X 2.
    • For those who have interviewed, did you receive feedback regarding the interview at the dinner or do they not discuss it?
    • 12/4- When I have time, I think I need to write extensively on the nature and psychology of the SOF. I will post it in the last year section of this platform for others to see. I will cross-post it here too. To answer your question, it depends on who you end up chatting with. Some are interested in talking about your research, taking a cue from the interview. For others, you talk about their research or something entirely different. The point is to keep talking about whatever. In my experience, I chatted with some of the senior fellows. Some of them spoke with me in-depth about the interview and asked more questions. My interaction with another senior fellow was just on politics and changed later to stuff about physics, which I know nothing about by the way, and then to geography. People always say the dinner is important and is an extension of the interview. I really think if you did very well at the interview, the dinner is a place to wait to seal it off or say nonsense that casts doubt on your interview. So be careful how you relate at the dinner.
    • To the person above - did you win the fellowship, and if not, were you able to tell that you wouldn’t get it based on what happened during the interview/dinner?
    • To all SoF applicants: decision will be made this Sunday and calls will be made Sunday night. Good luck!
    • 12/11- Today is the big day
    • 12/11: Are you sure we hear today? I was told the meeting was today, but they make calls Mon/Tue?
      • I honestly think they can't spend their Sunday meeting to decide. They had the whole week for that. In previous years, some fellows got the call on Sunday. Others received small letters of rejection between monday and friday. Infact, they would have made those letters by now, if not how come some candidates receive theirs on mondays? This is to show that decisions have been made already.
      • This is firsthand knowledge obtained from someone currently in the SoF: they meet Sunday because it’s the only day that works for them all, and deliberations take many hours. They don’t meet multiple times during the week. Small letters go out to those who did not get an interview, so they have long known who will be getting those. I was told that Ana will be calling today sometime after 4 pm. If you don’t get a call today, you did not get it.
      • Well that still makes so much sense.
  • 12/11- News anyone?
    • Offer just received by phone
    • Congratulations. Around what time?
  • 12/12 - rejection email received
    • Question: what other post-docs offer the complete scholarly freedom of the Harvard SOF?

KLARMAN FELLOWSHIP, CORNELL

  • 11/04- Any word on the Cornell Klarman Fellowship?
    • 11/05- No news on klarman.
    • 11/18- Invitation to interview (interviews to be held between Nov 28 and Dec 1) x2
      • just curious, in what fields are you? (R1): Iberian and Latin American Cultures
      • 12/2- interviewed earlier in the week. Spent about 20minutes. Looks like they just wanted to see one's face. It appears that the application material is more important than the videoconference. They asked questions that can be answered from the submitted letter. Five constant questions for every candidate.
      • 12/3-Also interviewed earlier in the week. They asked me very specific questions about my research... It wasn't a particularly friendly experience hahah. Did they tell you when they would be notifying people of their decisions?
      • 12/4- Well it wasn’t entirely easy too, but it just felt like they knew your work very well and that’s why they asked those questions. Perhaps you are in a field closer to their’s lol. I anticipate hearing back from them between now and the end of the week of 15th. They didn’t say this but that should be the timeline.
      • 12/4 I also interviewed last week and got the “standard” questions. No in depth research ones. Might have to do with whether the interviewers are in or adjacent to your field.
      • 12/8 - rejection received, no interview x2
      • 12/8- Did you guys tried logging into your portal? The description on my portal changed from "Under review" to "Interviews." Not sure what that means.
      • 12/14 offer received via email
      • BIg news and congratulations. How long do you have to accept? (R1): Thanks! Until January 6. Did you hear from them? (fingers crossed)
      • not yet, but I am very hopeful!
      • [12/16] I have neither been invited for an interview nor rejected yet, and my application status is still "under review." The fellowship administrator wrote that "Though the first round of regrets has gone out, many applications are still under review at this time. We hope to communicate with the remaining applicants before the holiday break." Any idea what this means?
      • 12/16. That's interesting. When did you get this message? Before or after the first interviews? This could mean that they are responding to people in phases. Obviously, they don't respond to everyone at the same time., either for rejections or acceptance
      • 12/16. Responding to the above: I got this email on 12/12, so well after many others heard back about regrets or interviews.
      • 1/14- any news for other candidates?
      • 1/18… 180 applications, 22 interviewed. Rejection email

      • What did they request, if you don't mind my asking?
      • Writing sample!
      • 12/6: rejection received
      • 12/7: Question for above posters - would you mind giving some more info on the emails you received from Dartmouth SoF? I have received neither a rejection nor a materials request, and I don't know what to make of that... (x5)
      • Happened to me several years back, turned out I was out.
        • A similar thing happened in previous years, but not sure what to make of it.
        • I emailed them and asked about the status of my application (I also did not get a rejection nor a request for a writing sample) and I got this reply: "The Faculty Fellows have asked to review writing samples from a select group for further review. More information on the status of applications will be available in mid-January." Not sure what to make of it, but at least there's some hope.
    • 1/12: Any updates? In years past, interview invitations have gone out around now.
    • 1/23; See posting above under Dartmouth -- interviews are happening this week
  • 11/14- Anyone hear from Stanford SOF?
    • 11/14- no news from Stanford SOF

    • 1/27 - still no updates
  • 11/28 - Any word on the Mizzou Faculty Diversity Postdoc?

    • 2/17: any updates?
  • 11/28: Just an FYI to everyone asking for updates: It is still too early for many (most!) of these postdocs to have given updates. You should really check out past years' pages to get a sense of the timeframes when decisions are announced, as they're pretty consistent year over year.=

    • 12/16: Request for additional materials for the Social Science Core. The email was a bit confusing. Not clear if they are requesting materials from every applicant or only from those that made it to next stage. Any thoughts?
    • 12/27: Request for additional materials for the Humanities Core (x2)
    • Anything else after this?
    • 2/6: Nope, email from program admin said interview requests would be sent out in "early March" for interviews in March
    • 2/7: was the early March thing for Humanities Core? the email for SS Core said February.
      • Yes early March thing was for Humanities Core!
    • 3/3: any news from the Humanities Core?
      • 3/3: None yet over here
      • 3/5: None yet here either
      • 3/10: Still nothing?
      • 3/10: nothing over here :(
      • 3/10: Same here..... hoping this means that notice hasn't gone out, not that the Elect just aren't checking this page...
      • 3/14: any news for Humanities Core?
      • 03/15: nothing here!
        • 3/15 nothing here either!
        • 3/15: invitation for zoom interview recieved 3/12 - it's not clear to me if they all went out at once or if they're going out gradually. good luck to all who are waiting!
          • congrats! thanks for the update and good luck!
          • You got an interview request on a Sunday? How considerate of Chicago.
      • 3/16: Has anyone been in touch with the program coordinator, or received firmer details elsewhere on when rejections will be sent?
      • 3/20: Crickets over here...
      • 5/16: offer received for humanities core
  • 12/17: Any word from Columbia or Michigan SOF?
    • 12/19: Rejection Letter from Michigan SOF and Invitation for Interview from Columbia Received
  • 12/19: Any word from Stanford Mellon Fellowship in the Humanities? (gender studies, history, linguistics)
    • 12/19 No news from Stanford (history)
    • 1/4 No news here
    • 1/13 Any word? It seems that applicants found out about moving to the departmental review round around this time last year.
    • 1/13 Nothing yet...
    • 1/18 Same, nothing ... But if someone does, please let us know to put us out of our misery sooner than later
    • 1/19 Last year, the mid-results came out on 1/11, and its purpose was to request recommendations from those moving on to the departmental review round. This year, recommendations were part of the application from the start. This makes me think that they may be going straight to the next round without notifying applicants of their mid-results. Just a guess, though.
    • 1/21 Does anyone know what the "order" of rounds actually is? Does it go mellon committee people and then department to decide on finalists? Or does it start at the department and then they send a top list to the mellon committee people to decide who the awardees are? I've heard some things but can't make sense of what they mean because idk what the process actually is. No official word from anyone though.
      • Last year, the order was from the mellon committee review to the departmental review. This transition involved narrowing down the applicant pool to 100 for the departmental review (from about 800-900 applicants, I think). This information was included in the semi-finalist notification.
      • ^^thanks! I heard over a month ago that departments had sent a list of recommendations to the mellon committee. That + some reasons that have already been mentioned make me think that the process is different this year.
      • 1/27 Any news?
      • Nope ...
      • 2/1: Application status has disappeared from the "online application portal" homepage. A sign that there's at least some kind of movement going on. Hopefully we'll hear something soon.
      • 2/8 Any word from Stanford? -- 2/9 None yet here
      • 2/10 No news yet (x2)
      • 2/13 Any news?

    • Congrats to the above posters - Can someone please clarify if the Core Curriculum and the Global Works & Society Postdoc are the same thing? Thanks! (x2)
    • 1/18: Nope, they're separate: Core Curriculum is internal and run through the College of Arts and Sciences, whereas Works & Society is open to external applicants and housed in the Liberal Studies school. Were the invites mentioned above for W&S or CC?-- congrats btw!! –– thank you! mine was for CC (I adjusted the post) -- Great, Thanks!
    • 3/7: Any word from the CC after interviews?
    • 3/13: Offer received (x2)
  • 1/18 Any word about the Global Works & Society Postdoc at NYU?
    • 1/19: None here-- my Interfolio app does have space for new documents that I cannot submit though. Anyone else seeing this? I took it as a silent rejection but maybe it's too early to tell.
    • 1/19: Interesting - It's the same for me on Interfolio. I see space for more teaching materials and letters of rec, but cannot submit. Still, also have not gotten a rejection yet.
    • Feb 14: Any word on NYU Global Works and Society?
    • Feb 15: Rejection
    • Feb 18: Anyone else not receive a rejection nor any other news?
  • 1/8 - Anyone hear anything about the Folger Institute postdoc? or the timeline?
  • 1/12 - Anyone hear from the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture (IASC) at the University of Virginia?

    • Rejection email received (3/24)
    • Anyone who got an earlier shortlist email still waiting for news? (3/29)
  • 1/13- Any news on Princeton-Mellon Fellows in Architecture, Urbanism and the Humanities?
    • Wasn't the deadline only five days ago on 1/8? It will take some time to hear back...
    • some people heard back (for letters) in about a week two years ago.
    • Request for letters of recommendation (1/17- x2)
    • 1/18: the letter, was it for Princeton and were you notified or the letter writers?
    • 1/18: it was for Princeton and the letter writers were notified.- x2
    • 1/19: fwiw, you can find out if Princeton requested letters by looking at your application. If letters were requested it will say if the letter has been submitted or not
    • 1/23: does anyone know when the letters are due? I'd like to follow-up with my recommenders and make sure they don't miss it, but I don't know when the deadline is...
    • Thank you
    • 1/27: My advisors received requests for letters yesterday, which was surprising as they did not receive requests earlier as others have. I did not receive any alerts myself. I do not know if they have been given a deadline, but I can ask.
    • 1/27: that’s interesting. Apparently there are different timelines which might be due to sending the application materials to different people to read.
    • 4/11: any updates?
    • 4/12: rejection
    • 5/1: still waiting. any news?
  • (1/16) - Any news on the Fred and Dorothy Chau Mellon Postdoc at Pomona College?

    • 2/10 still no news
    • 2/15 Any news? --> (2/15) no news here
    • 2/23 Still no news. I think at this point a rejection is imminent, any ideas of the process? R1: No news, last year I think they did interviews in February and rejections went out the first week of February (based on last year's Humanities wiki) so I was surprised to see no movement on the forum. They could just be running behind this year.
    • 2/28 still no news- I wholeheartedly agree with R! above. While it doesn't necessarily look good, many of the timelines that have been concrete in the past for other postdocs are also running behind. While a rejection may be imminent, it seems evident to me that very little is running on time this year. --> x1 for no news yet
    • 3/2 no news x1
    • 3/23 not hopeful, but any news?
    • 5/11 did anyone ever hear from Pomona? They've been so consistent with timelines in the past, the radio silence seems odd.
    • 5/12 nothing here (rejection or otherwise)
    • 5/17: I withdrew my application earlier in the spring when I accepted another offer and I'm surprised to see nobody posting about interviews or offers.
