Michigan Society of Fellows

2006-2009 Postdoctoral Fellowships Application

Application Deadline: postmark September 30, 2005

The Michigan Society of Fellows, under the auspices of the Rackham Graduate School, was established in 1970 with endowment grants from the Ford Foundation and the Horace H. and Mary Rackham Funds. The most distinctive aspect of the Society is a multidisciplinary emphasis which gives the Fellows an opportunity to interact across disciplines and to expand their horizons and knowledge. While their own scholarship is enriched, the Fellows also enrich the University of Michigan through teaching during their residency and bringing new insights to other faculty members. Each year the Society selects four outstanding applicants for appointment to three-year fellowships in the arts and humanities, in the social, physical and life sciences, and in the professional schools. The newly appointed Postdoctoral Fellows join a unique interdisciplinary community composed of their peers as well as Senior Fellows. The Chair of the Society is James Boyd White, L. Hart Wright Professor of Law at the University of Michigan.

We invite applications from qualified candidates who are at the beginning of their academic careers, having received the Ph.D. or comparable professional or artistic degree between June 1, 2003, and September 1, 2006. Fellows are appointed as Assistant Professors in appropriate departments at the University of Michigan and as Postdoctoral Scholars in the Michigan Society of Fellows. They are expected to be in residence during the academic years of the fellowship, to teach for the equivalent of one academic year, to participate in the informal intellectual life of the Society, and to devote time to their independent research. The annual stipend will be $47,271.
