Perilman Post-Doctoral Fellowship

Please apply at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19569

The Perilman Post-Doctoral Fellowship provides a stipend of $55,000 per year, as well as benefits, for one full year, with a second year possible renewal. The Fellow will be expected to be in residence, to conduct research in Duke's library and archival collections, to participate actively in the intellectual life of the university, to teach three semester courses over two years, and to give a public lecture on their research. The Fellow may not undertake any other sustained teaching or employment during their tenure at Duke. Preference will be given to candidates whose area of research and teaching most enriches the offerings already available on campus and whose presence in the Research Triangle promises the greatest contribution to the faculty and student intellectual community, as well as those for whom the use of the Duke Library holdings and Special Collections will be most profitable. This postdoctoral fellowship honors the memory of Rabbi Nathan Perilman, who, after serving at Temple Emmanu-El in New York City, joined the Triangle-area Jewish community in his retirement.

Priority deadline: January 15, 2022.

Applicants must have earned the PhD within the past 3 years. Advanced doctoral students applying must include a statement from their dissertation supervisor indicating that they will have the Ph.D. in hand by July 1, 2022. Applicants should submit the following materials electronically:
