… the Davis Center fellowship struck the perfect balance between intellectual stimulation and fellowship, on the one hand, and the peace and quiet to think and write, whether in my exceptionally well set-up office or in the remarkable Firestone library.”

As part of our mission to support innovation in historical research, The Davis Center welcomes applications for Fellowships from scholars whose research engages broadly and imaginatively with the theme that the Center sets each year. Our aim is to bring to five to six Fellows per semester to the Center where they pursue their own scholarly projects and contribute to the intellectual community of the Center and the university. We are also pleased to announce one residential Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior position, focused on the more specific topic of “Law & Difference.”

Applications for 2018/19 fellowships are due December 1, 2017. Applications for the Postdoctoral Research Associate position are due January 2, 2018.
