postdoctoral fellowships in the Humanities, Texas

Recently seen on Translation Studies is not specified in the ad but I see no reason why translation-related studies wouldn't be eligible, what? Deadline is 30 November 2011 for Mellon Fellowships running from 2012 to 2014.

Three Postdoc Fellowship Openings in the Humanities Research Center at Rice University, Houston, Texas

The Humanities Research Center (HRC) awards up to three postdoctoral fellowships for two-year appointments (approval of the second year is dependent upon satisfactory performance during the first year). The fellowships are designed to encourage interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching and to support research projects in the humanities. This includes, but is not limited to history, philosophy, languages, literature, linguistics, religious studies, art history and the arts. Proposals employing humanistic approaches are welcome from anthropology and other social sciences, natural sciences, music, architecture, and engineering.

Fellows teach two courses per academic year and are expected to make significant progress in their research. Fellows meet with other HRC affiliates regularly to share works in progress and otherwise participate in the intellectual life of the Center.

Fellows receive $40,000 salary per year plus $2000 moving and research funds and are eligible for university benefits.

- Applicants must have received the PhD between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2012.
- Fellowship recipients cannot have accepted or currently hold a tenure-track position.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
- Teach one course per semester in the humanities.
- Participate in the intellectual life of the Humanities Research Center and make significant research progress.
