Neukom Fellows are interdisciplinary positions for recent PhDs, DMAs, or MFAs whose research interests or practice cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and has some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual exploration or an explicit part of the work that is pursued.
The Neukom Institute is pleased to announce the Neukom Postdoctoral Fellows competition for positions starting September 1, 2021.
The successful candidate should have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, but still show evidence of independence and initiative. They must have their Ph.D. in any discipline or expected by September 2021, DMA or MFA. The Fellowships are two year appointments.
Neukom Fellows will be mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take up residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course each year on a subject of their interest. Other than travel for research and conferences, fellows are expected to be in residence at Dartmouth. There are no additional duties.
Neukom Fellow stipends are $60,000 for 2021-2022. Additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and research materials.
