With generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the University of Oregon’s Center for Environmental Futures invites applications for a fall-term Mellon Visiting Scholar position in the Environmental Humanities, to run from September 15 through December 15, 2020. Applications are welcome from scholars who study the environment from any perspective in the humanities or allied fields (for example ecological approaches to literature, gender, religion, politics, philosophy, the arts, and/or race; animal studies; indigenous studies, environmental justice, ethics and sustainability; environmental history, cultural geography; anthropology, or sociology). The fellow will offer a public lecture, attend regular Center research colloquia, and pursue independent research and writing. Candidates must be at least five years beyond the PhD. Independent scholars are welcome.
The stipend of $39,000 may be used to supplement a sabbatical or support the fellow’s expenses while at the University of Oregon. Relocation expenses of up to $2,000 are also available. No other benefits are provided.
Deadline for applications is March 15, 2020. Please submit a brief research statement of the project to be undertaken during the fellowship period, a c.v., a writing sample of approximately 25 pages (or comparable evidence of scholarly accomplishment), and three references (with email addresses, whom we will contact for letters of recommendation). Inquiries about the search may be sent to email@example.com.
