NEH Public Scholar Program
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has announced a new grant opportunity, the Public Scholar Program, intended to support well-researched books in the humanities that have been conceived and written to reach a broad readership. Books supported through the Public Scholar Program might present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject, or examine the latest thinking on a topic. Most importantly, they should present significant humanities topics in a way that is accessible to general readers.
The Public Scholar Program is open to both independent scholars and individuals affiliated with scholarly institutions. It offers a stipend of $4,200 per month for a period of six to twelve months. The maximum stipend is $50,400 for a twelve-month period. Applicants must have previously published a book or monograph with a university or commercial press, or articles and essays that reach a wide readership.
Application guidelines and a list of F.A.Q.’s for the Public Scholar Program are available on the NEH’s website at http://www.neh.gov/grants/research/public-scholar-program. The application deadline for the first cycle is March 3, 2015. Recipients may begin the term of the grant as early as October 1, 2015 or as late as September 1, 2016. The official press release for the new program is available here: http://www.neh.gov/news/press-release/2014-12-01
Post-Doctoral Fellowship at New York University
The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NY University invites applications for a post-doctoral fellowship for one year in the history of science and technology, or a related field, with the possibility for renewal for a second year.

The successful candidate will advance their own research project, teach two undergraduate courses a year, assist in the execution and development of the NYC History of Science Group, the NYU Science and Society minor and take part in the academic life of NYU and the Gallatin School. Candidates are requested to submit a curriculum vitae, a research proposal on a topic related to the project (750 words maximum), a sample or samples of writing (i.e., article or book chapter), and two letters of recommendation.
