American Philosophical Society


The American Philosophical Society invites applications for a Burkhardt Fellowship in Evolutionary Studies and Thought available within the period 1 September 2001 to 1 September 2003. The Fellowship carries a stipend of $40,000 for a continuous nine-month residence at the Society, utilizing the Library's rich collections on evolution and Charles Darwin, including his forerunners and contemporary critics and successors, associated disciplines of genetics and eugenics, and other appropriate biological and behavioural sciences. Information about the Society's collections is available on its website.

It is expected that the successful candidate will be at least five years beyond the receipt of his or her doctorate or an equivalent degree, will have shown signs of serious scholarship, and will have published in the general area of his or her proposed research project. The Burkhardt Fellow will be expected to be in continuous residence at the Society, although this does not preclude brief visits to other repositories critical to his or her research, for which modest funds will be available.

Further information is available from the Burkhardt Fellowship Committee, American Philosophical Society, 105 South Fifth Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106-3386 (tel. 215 440 3400, fax 215 440 8579).
