Provost's Postdoctoral Scholar - Teaching Fellow
The USC Society of Fellows in the Humanities is an
interdisciplinary community of postdoctoral scholars and faculty
members in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. The
Society supports advanced research by postdoctoral fellows and
faculty members by promoting intellectual exchange and
interdisciplinary approaches to research and teaching in the
humanities and humanistic social sciences.
Each year the Society admits up to five postdoctoral
fellows, who are appointed for two-year terms during which they
pursue research and teach three courses over four semesters, with
one semester for full-time research. They are expected to reside in
the Los Angeles area during the academic year and to participate in
the scholarly life of the Society, the host department, and the
university. The salary for postdoctoral fellows is $57,500 per year
plus fringe benefits, with an additional research and travel
account of $6,000 per year.
Fellows meet regularly in formal and informal settings to
present and discuss advanced scholarly research. Postdoctoral
fellows are affiliated with the Society as well as with a USC
department of their choice, and have faculty mentors in both.
Postdoctoral fellows in the humanities engage with each other as
well as humanities departments, institutes, and centers at USC and
in the broader Los Angeles area.
