Pitt Faculty Fellowship

Applicants must have fulltime, continuing appointments in the School of Arts and Sciences, in a department in the humanities or allied social sciences. Those selected as fellows will receive a minimum of one course released time for one semester, perhaps more if resources permit. Fellows have the option, as approved by their department chair, to buy out a second course through salary reduction. Fellows must reside in Pittsburgh and must agree to participate fully in the activities of the center during the tenure of their fellowship. Fellows will be appointed by the dean, as recommended by the center director, after consultation with the center’s advisory committee (comprising five tenured colleagues from Pitt humanities departments). Because a fellowship affects teaching assignments, those applying should alert their department chair.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 13, 2014 for the academic year 2015-16. We cannot accept materials before September 8, 2014.

To apply for Fellowship, send the following:

1) EIGHT COPIES of a packet including:

  • CV
  • Proposal of 1,000 words stating the project to be pursued while a fellow.

2) TWO COPIES of a writing sample of 5,000 to 10,000 words.

Letters and application packets should be sent to:
