Doris Stone Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Doris Z. Stone Post-Doctoral Fellowship, appointed in the Stone Center for Latin American Studies and housed at the Middle American Research Institute (MARI), aims to foster the professional development of gifted scholars, enrich MARI’s vigorous research environment, and cultivate intellectual exchange within the Institute's research community. We seek to support the development of early-career scholars from diverse backgrounds—especially scholars from historically or geographically under-represented or indigenous groups—conducting innovative anthropological research in Mesoamerica or Central America, areas where Doris Z. Stone made significant scholarly contributions.

We seek candidates with research interests that broadly complement the Middle American Research Institute’s efforts 1) researching the indigenous history, languages, and cultures of Mesoamerica and Central America, 2) stewarding its archaeological and ethnological collections, and 3) developing programs and events to educate the public on Mesoamerica and Central America. Fellows are expected to participate in the full intellectual life of the university, offer an advanced interdisciplinary seminar on a subject of their choice during one semester of each fellowship year, present on their research once every two semesters of the appointment, as well as counsel undergraduate, Masters, and doctoral students as needed.
