The Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville invites applications for the 2011-2012 Jimmy and Dee Haslam Postdoctoral Fellowship, a one-year fellowship to be held August 1, 2011 to July 31, 2012 and renewable for one year. The Haslam Fellowship is open to untenured scholars in any field of medieval or Renaissance studies whose work falls in the period 300-1700 C.E.
The Institute hopes to attract a scholar of outstanding potential with an innovative research plan, who will participate fully in the intellectual life of the Marco community throughout the academic year. During the course of the year, the Fellow will teach one upper division undergraduate class and one graduate seminar in his or her field of expertise. Seminars will preferably use primary source materials. The Fellow may teach both courses in a single semester if her or his research plan warrants that arrangement, and will be eligible to apply for travel funding through the Institute.
Salary is $40,000 and includes full benefits. Applications, including curriculum vitae, a detailed research plan (2 single-spaced pages), and two letters of reference, should be sent to Prof. Heather Hirschfeld, Riggsby Director, Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, University of Tennessee, Dunford Hall, sixth floor, 915 Volunteer Blvd., Knoxville, TN 37996-4065 by April 1, 2011.
