The Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities is now inviting applications for the 2022-2023 Society of Fellows fellowship.

The Society of Fellows in the Humanities at Columbia University intends to appoint a number of postdoctoral fellows in the humanities for the academic year 2022-2023. Fellows newly appointed for 2022-2023 must have received the PhD between 1 January 2018 and 1 July 2022. The fellowship amount for 2022-2023 is $65,000. Medical benefits are provided, and subsidized housing is available. There is a $7,000 research allowance per annum. The deadline is October 4, 2021.

The Society of Fellows is committed to assembling a diverse and inclusive academic community. Toward this end, we especially encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups and those whose interests contribute to realizing this goal.

The Society of Fellows in the Humanities brings together exceptional early career scholars to be part of a cross-disciplinary community. In addition to teaching opportunities in affiliated departments and time for research, Fellows support each others’ intellectual and professional development through lecture series, workshops, and other opportunities. An integral part of the life of the SOF/Heyman, Fellows are frequently invited to participate in events with faculty from around the university.

Founded in the mid-1970s to encourage interdisciplinary teaching and research and housed in the Heyman Center for the Humanities since the 1980s, the Society offers one-year fellowships, renewable for up to two additional years.

The Society of Fellows is made possible by the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the William R. Kenan Trust.
