The John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University invites applications for two residential postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities, each awarded for the one-year period beginning July 1, 2006 and ending June 30, 2007, and each offering a stipend of $40,000 plus full fringe benefits and access to a modest pool of research funds.
Of particular interest to Electronic Literature Organization members is the fellowship awarded in the Franklin Humanities Institute Franklin Seminar on â€œInterface.â€ This yearlong postdoctoral fellowship is funded by the Franklin Humanities Institute in collaboration with a national consortium called HASTAC (the Humanities Arts Science and Technology Advanced Collaboratory). The fellowship is designed to support work on a scholarly research project, software design project, work of interactive digital art, or game-based learning project that address themes explored in the seminar. The post-doctoral fellow will attend the regular weekly meetings of the seminar, and either teach one class of her/his design in Duke Universityâ€™s Information Studies & Information Sciences (ISIS) Program or undertake a “course equivalent” project, which may include participating in a collaborative project with students and faculty, and which will require the same amount of work as would a conventional teaching experience.
