The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition (GLC), part of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University, currently invites applications from the scholars worldwide for a residential fellowship program on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery.
This is an interdisciplinary fellowship program, based in history and the social sciences, which aims to promote innovative research on the origins and conditions that lead to contemporary slavery.
The successful fellows will receive an academic year stipend of $55,000 plus individual health insurance coverage.
All Gilder Lehrman Center Fellows will have full access to the Yale University libraries and email.
Normally, Fellows can expect shared office space, computer access and basic office supplies.
Interested candidates, who have other sources of funding, may apply with a clear indication of their funding situation.
All applicants should indicate clearly whether they are seeking full or partial funding.
An earned doctorate in a relevant field or alternatively equivalent qualifications for research and teaching are expected for the successful candidate.
In addition to working on his/her own research project, the Fellow is expected to teach one course related to his/her research and hold related office hours for students, and offer one public lecture or conduct a workshop.
The Fellows are also expected to interact with students and faculty, contribute to the intellectual life of the Center, and participate in its collective activities and development.
Ideally, the fellows will also complete a significant publication during his/her residency.
