Applications are welcome from scholars who study science, technology, or medicine in any region of the world and from any of a range of historical, philosophical, sociological, anthropological, or literary perspectives. Each Fellow will be affiliated with the SHC program and an appropriate disciplinary department in Weinberg College (History, Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology, etc.). Fellows will pursue a program of independent scholarship under the guidance of a faculty mentor identified after selection.

They will also design and teach two undergraduate courses each year, over the course of the three-quarter-long teaching year. (Typically these will be one seminar and one lecture course to be listed by the affiliated departments.) Fellows will also help organize and run the SHC visiting lecturer series. They are expected to be active participants in intellectual activities in both SHC and their affiliated departments and to deliver one public lecture each year.

Applicants with a Ph.D. (or equivalent doctoral degree) must have completed their degree after September 1, 2016. Applicants without a Ph.D. (or equivalent doctoral degree) must complete all the requirements for the degree before September 1, 2021. At time of application, the applicant must be available for the full two-year term. The annual stipend  will be in the environs of $56,000. In addition, the Fellow is eligible for $3,500 per year to fund research and conference travel, and up to $1,500 for allowable relocation expenses in the first year. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible position.
