Become a Fellow
For 2017-18, the Center for Cultural Analysis will sponsor five fellowships for Rutgers faculty, five fellowships for Rutgers graduate students, and two Postdoctoral Associate positions for external scholars.
Faculty fellows will receive funding for a course release from their home departments, generally up to $5000. Graduate fellows will receive a $23,000 stipend, up to three credits in tuition remission, and health benefits (through the Graduate School), but they may not hold any other teaching positions, long-term fellowships, or administrative appointments during their CCA year. Postdoctoral Associates will receive a $45,000 salary, health benefits, and a private office in the new Rutgers Academic Building on the College Avenue campus. During the course of the academic year, Postdoctoral Associates teach one undergraduate course in a relevant Department within SAS, which is arranged through the CCA. Since the CCA Postdoctoral Associate position is considered a residential appointment, candidates must agree to establish residency within a forty mile radius of the New Brunswick campus during the duration of their appointment.
All seminar participants will have access to the CCA’s resources and will be expected to participate in and to present their work during CCA seminars, which meet regularly throughout the academic year.
For more information, please check out our upcoming research seminar on the Medical Humanities.
