Post-Doctoral and Junior Faculty Fellowships, 2006-2007

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Program Overview

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an international learned society and research institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, invites postdoctoral scholars and nontenured junior faculty to apply for research fellowships for the 2006-2007 year.

The Academy is interested in proposals that relate to its current projects in the following program areas: Humanities & Culture, Science & Global Security, Social Policy & American Institutions, and Education. For more information on these studies, please visit the Academy’s website (www.amacad.org/projects.aspx). Projects that address American cultural, social, or political issues from the founding period to the present are especially welcome, as are studies that consider developments in America from a multidisciplinary and/or comparative perspective. In conjunction with its 225th anniversary, the Academy has launched a major archival initiative to preserve its historic papers and invites proposals that will draw upon these holdings as well.

Visiting Scholars are expected to participate in conferences, seminars, and events at the Academy while advancing their independent research; they must be in residence during their fellowship year.
