IE University and Brown University Announce Fellowship
The IE-Brown International Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship on the Humanities is an annual opportunity open by IE School of Arts and Humanities to the Brown University post-graduate community in the field of humanities. The fellowship offers the opportunity for young academics to further their development through designing and implementing their own curricular ideas in the international classroom setting of IE’s cross-disciplinary approach to humanities.
One fellowship will be awarded each year; s/he will receive research support from IE and spend one year in Spain at both of the School’s campuses in Segovia and Madrid. The fellow will teach classes and contribute to the development of IE’s innovative humanities curriculum for the University and the Business School.
In addition, the fellow will have full academic support from Brown University and the opportunity to spend a month as a resident fellow at the Cogut Center for the Humanities on the Brown University campus. The Center aims to encourage an interdisciplinary approach to scholarship, foster innovation in research, and promote intellectual conversation among individuals from the humanities and related academic disciplines.
Existing graduates expected to complete their PhD before the fellowship begins, and those who have received their post doctorate within the past three years, can apply directly with IE by December 2011. The first fellowship will be awarded in the 2012-2013 academic year.
