Rhinehart Postdoctoral Fellowship in British History, 2022/23
Appalachian State University, North Carolina
This Fellowship is open to early-career scholars who have recently been or will shortly be awarded their doctorates in early modern or modern British history. In line with ongoing initiatives to internationalize the campus at Appalachian State, the post is designed for non-U.S. citizens. Appalachian State has a traditional strength in British studies, reflected in the Library holdings, the long association with the journal Albion, and the establishment in 2008 of a Distinguished Professorship in British History (the endowment for which also funds the Rhinehart Postdoctoral Fellowship). This is a 9-month appointment (September to May), non-renewable. Fellow will receive a maintenance grant of $7500; rent-free accommodation; health insurance; visa assistance; $1000 toward the cost of return airfare; office on campus with computer; and access to all appropriate academic support services.
Applications, submitted electronically, should include:
(1) one-page CV;
(2) 400-word outline of the research project to be carried out at Appalachian State, with a statement explaining why access to the Special Collections and other material at Appalachian State would be helpful [for information about the Collections consult www.collections.library.appstate.edu or email firstname.lastname@example.org];
(3) letter of recommendation from the candidate’s supervisor.
Please email all application materials to email@example.com. Informal inquiries can be sent to Dr. Michael Turner at the same address. Closing date for applications: November 26, 2021. Successful candidate will be expected to take up the Fellowship at Appalachian State University in September 2022. Appalachian State University has a strong commitment to the principles of diversity and inclusion, and to maintaining working and learning environments that are free of all forms of discrimination.
