The Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Latin American Studies

This open-application program invites applications for two (2) research fellowships for the Academic Year with program administration duties and/or light teaching. Applications are encouraged from candidates engaged in scholarly or creative work in areas that the Stone Center defines as critical for advancing the strategic needs of its Latin Americanist community during the Zemurray-Stone Fellows‘€™ periods of residency. These areas of expertise will necessarily change from year to year, but they will be stated at the time each new application process is opened.

Fellows are expected to pursue their own research and to participate in the full intellectual life of the Center. Fellows will be selected based on intellectual merit, experience, and the potential impact of their planned research for the Stone Center. Prior to appointment, the Executive Director of the Stone Center and the Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellow will prepare an Individual Development Plan that defines the scope of work for the Fellow. Appointments are made for an academic year, but individuals may apply for reappointment for a second year.

The application process for the Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellowship program is managed through Interfolio. Notices of the Fellowships competition are posted in September with an application deadline of December 31. Successful candidates are notified beginning February 15, following academic confirmation that their degrees will be conferred before the commencement of their appointments for the period July 1 to June 30.
