The University of Pittsburgh Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences is offering three postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities and two in the social sciences (in the Department of History and the Department of Economics) for the academic year 2016-2017. Fellows will teach one course each semester, complete scholarly work, and participate in the academic and intellectual communities of the departments with which they are affiliated and across the Dietrich School. Within the Dietrich School, rich opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange are available in the Humanities Center, the World History Center and in a number of vibrant multidisciplinary programs.
Fellows receive an annual stipend of $45,000, a $3,500 annual research/travel allowance, and a $1,500 one-time moving allowance. Fellows may apply for an additional one-year renewal. The University provides a relatively comprehensive package of fringe benefits, including medical insurance, participant-paid dental and vision insurance, life insurance, eligibility to participate in the University’s tuition scholarships program, and a retirement plan allowing personal tax deferral to TIAA/CREF with no University match. Fellows have access to additional benefits which currently include: University libraries and recreational facilities, computing and networking services, and fare-free public transportation.
We invite applications from qualified candidates who have satisfactorily completed all requirements for the PhD degree, including any oral defense, by June 1, 2016. Individuals who graduated before September 1, 2014 are ineligible. Any offer of employment is contingent upon having the PhD degree in-hand prior to the appointment, and acquiring all proper visas (for international fellows).
