Dartmouth College invites applications for the Thurgood Marshall Dissertation Fellowship. We seek top scholars working in any geographies and disciplines and interdisciplinary spaces across African Diaspora, African American, African, or Africana Studies. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose work augments and complements current faculty in the African and African American Studies Program (AAAS). Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and their demonstrated commitment to educational diversity. Applications from candidates who are underrepresented in their fields are especially welcome.
This is a two-year residential fellowship in which the fellow is focused on their research and writing. We seek scholars who can contribute to building the intellectual life of the AAAS program and Dartmouth College.. Fellows are expected to complete the dissertation at the end of their first year and then transition to a postdoctoral appointment for the second year. In the first year, predoctoral fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $36,000 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses. In the second year, postdoctoral fellows receive a stipend of approximately $55,200 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses (exact funding levels for 2020-22 will be set at the time of offer). Fellows will teach one course in the second year.
Marshall Fellows are part of the Provost’s Fellowship Program, a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars who share a commitment to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers.
Review of applications will begin February 1, 2020 and continue until the position is filled.
