Johns Hopkins, founded in 1876, is America's first research university and home to nine world-class academic divisions working together as one university.

Description

The Society of Fellows assembles a select group of recent PhD and MFA recipients to pursue a range of meaningful careers available to scholars in the Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences. Fellows will build on their doctoral training as they explore new applications for their academic expertise through hands-on experience.

This initiative has four major goals:
  • Provide recent graduates with an opportunity to expand their areas of interest and expertise.
  • Diversify the potential career paths of Krieger School graduates.
  • Give PhD candidates incentive to finish their degree in a timely manner.
  • Display the value of the humanities both within Johns Hopkins and outside of the university.
Candidates will propose a year-long project that draws on their expertise and makes a contribution to the university community, the city of Baltimore, or some other public-facing endeavor. They are responsible for formulating their project in conversation with the program or office where they plan to work and identifying a mentor willing to supervise their project for the entire year. The project should entail 30 hours of work per week for the period of July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2025.

Selection: Fellows will be selected by a committee of KSAS faculty and members of the community committed to the value of doctoral training in the Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences. Applications will be evaluated for their thoroughness and thoughtfulness, the intellectual and social value of the project, and its suitability to the training and experience of the candidate.

Each fellow will receive a salary of $62,132, plus a $1,500 research budget, postdoc benefits, and health insurance.

Qualifications

Eligibility: JHU Krieger School students who complete their PhD in the humanities or related disciplines no more than 12 months before the start date.

Application Instructions

To apply please include the following:

  1. CV
  2. Description of the proposed project
  3. A letter of support from the proposed project mentor,
  4. A letter of recommendation from a faculty member who know the candidate well.


Deadline (for AY 2024–25): March 22, 2024.
