Neukom Fellows are interdisciplinary positions for recent
Ph.D.s, DMAs, or MFAs whose research interests or practice cuts
across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and has some
computational component, whether it be a framing concept for
intellectual exploration or an explicit part of the work that is
pursued. The successful candidate should have a history of
collaborative work across disciplines, but still show evidence of
independence and initiative. The Fellowships are two year
appointments and, other than standard research trips, Neukom
Fellows are expected to be in residence at Dartmouth College. Early
departure means early cut-off of support. Neukom Fellows will be
mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take
up residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course
each year on a subject of their interest. Beyond that there are no
additional duties. Neukom Fellow stipends are $60,000 for
2022-2023. Additional funds are available for equipment, travel,
and research materials.
