The Humanities Center hosts one to two Early Career Fellows per academic year. During their stay, Fellows work on their book manuscripts and contribute to the Center's life. Fellows are paid a stipend of $45,000, plus benefits, and they have access to a relocation and research fund of $5,000 (subject to University policies). Fellows are provided an office in the Cathedral of Learning. During their appointment, fellows are required to reside in Pittsburgh, to present at least one lecture and one colloquium, and to participate regularly in the Humanities Center's activities. Applicants must hold the PhD. Most of the past fellows have been tenure-track assistant professors, but we maintain a deliberately generous interpretation of "Early Career". Those expecting to complete the PhD in the current academic year should consider the Dietrich School Postdoctoral Fellows Program, which has a later application date.

We will begin accepting applications for the ECF for the 2017-2018 Academic Year after Labor Day, September 5, 2016. During periods when we accept applications to become an Early Career Fellow of the Humanities Center, application information will be posted here.
