The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an international learned society located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, invites applications for its Visiting Scholars Program. Preference will be given to untenured junior faculty, but qualified postdoctoral scholars are also urged to apply. Candidates who are completing scholarly manuscripts are especially welcome. The Academy seeks proposals that relate to its four research areas: Science, Technology & Global Security; Social Policy & American Institutions; Humanities & Culture; and Education. Projects that address American cultural, social, or political issues from the founding period to the present are welcome, as are studies on the history of science and technology in America. Visiting Scholars are based in Cambridge and expected to participate in seminars and other Academy events. The stipend is $40,000 for postdoctoral scholars; $60,000 for junior faculty (not to exceed one half salary). Deadline: October 15.
