Vassar College invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral 
Fellowship in Native American Studies, to begin Fall, 2006.  Candidates 
should be relatively new PhDs with training in Native American Studies 
or any relevant discipline. We seek scholars who have an interest in 
teaching in an undergraduate liberal arts college and who would welcome 
the opportunity to participate in the development of a multidisciplinary 
concentration in Native American Studies within our American Culture 
Program.  The Fellow will teach or team-teach one course in the Fall 
semester entitled Introduction to Native American Studies,and will help 
facilitate a monthly faculty seminar throughout the academic year 
intended to extend and deepen the interests in Native American Studies 
of faculty from several disciplines. The Fellow also will have some 
responsibility in advising students on projects and theses.  In 
addition, the Fellow will be able to pursue her or his own scholarly 
project in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment where 
exchange among faculty from different disciplines is encouraged.  The 
fellowship includes $44,000 in salary plus benefits, as well as support 
for research, professional travel and relocation expenses.
