The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture invites applications for a one-year Omohundro Institute Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in any area of early American studies. The award carries a year’s support to revise the applicant’s first book manuscript and the Institute’s commitment to publish the resulting study. The Institute’s scope encompasses the history and cultures of North America’s indigenous and immigrant peoples during the colonial, revolutionary, and early national periods of the United States and the related histories of Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America, the British Isles, Europe, and Africa, from the 16th century to approximately 1815. A year-long residency at the Institute is recommended; however, flexible arrangements are possible. No other employment may be held during the fellowship. Fellows are expected to devote their time exclusively to research and writing and to work closely with the editorial staff. The fellowship carries a stipend of $55,000 and a comprehensive benefits package; in addition, office facilities at the Institute and some travel funds for conferences and research are available. Application must be postmarked by November 1, 2011. For more information and instructions on how to apply, see the fellowship page online.
