Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowships in American Indian Studies
American Indian Studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign seeks as many as two Postdoctoral Fellows for the 2016-2017 academic year. This fellowship program provides a stipend, a close working association with AIS faculty, and assistance in furthering the fellow’s development as a productive scholar. Applicants should have an ongoing research project that promises to make a notable contribution to American Indian and Indigenous Studies. While fellows will concentrate on their research, they may choose to teach one course in American Indian Studies. Furthermore, fellows are expected to participate in the intellectual community of the American Indian Studies Program.
