With the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the London School of Economics is looking to appoint a Mellon Fellow as part of its innovative four-year programme that engages the humanities with the social and spatial dynamics of cities. We are seeking dynamic and engaged scholars and practitioners who are currently developing their careers in the arts, culture, literature, philosophy or other related humanities disciplines to contribute to the interdisciplinary work of LSE Cities, an international research centre that explores the interactions between space and society. We are now inviting applications for the fellowship in 2014/15.
The intellectual objective of the Mellon Fellowship programme is to mobilise an integrated mode of urban research that connects early and mid-career humanities scholars more closely to urban research and teaching at the heart of LSE Cities, and to open up new avenues for practical collaboration and intellectual exchange between the humanities and urbanism.
Spending nine months at LSE Cities, the Mellon Fellow will develop his/her own research in the context of the work on the urban environment carried out by the department. Selection will be made on the basis of original contributions to the field including interdisciplinary approaches to the analysis of the past, present and future cultures of the city – through writing, curating, public engagement or other narrative means.
Fellowship awards between £32,794 – £39,669 p.a. incl. for a 9-month term commencing October 1, 2014 (date flexible).
The closing date for applications is 28 February 2014.
