Posted Date

Dartmouth College invites applications for the Guarini Dean’s Fellowship in Asian American Studies. The fellowship supports scholars whose research addresses any aspect of Asian American experiences and cultures. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose work augments and complements current faculty in Asian Societies, Cultures, and Languages (ASCL). The fellow is expected to pursue research activities while participating fully in the intellectual life of ASCL and the college. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and their demonstrated commitment to educational diversity. Applications from candidates who are underrepresented in their fields are especially welcome.

This is a two-year residential fellowship that promotes student and faculty diversity at Dartmouth, and throughout higher education, by supporting completion of the doctorate by underrepresented scholars and others with a demonstrated ability to advance educational diversity and inclusivity. Fellows are expected to complete the dissertation before the second year and then transition to a postdoctoral appointment. During the second year of residency, fellows teach one course. The first year, predoctoral fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $39,000 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses. In the second year, postdoctoral fellows receive a stipend of approximately $57,960 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses (exact funding levels for 2023-2025 will be set at the time of offer).

Guarini Fellows are part of the Provost’s Fellowship Program , a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars who share a commitment to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers.


ABD in any discipline, with a focus on Asian American Studies.

Expected start date is July 1, 2023, and no later than September 1, 2023.
