Duke University Postdoctoral Fellowship in “Interface”

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 “Interface.” 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 University’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.
