Harvard-Newcomen Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications Due Soon

The Harvard-Newcomen Postdoctoral Fellowship in Business History is awarded for twelve months' residence, study, and research at Harvard Business School, July 1, 2011-June 30, 2012. The fellowship is open to scholars who, within the last ten years, have received a Ph.D. in history, economics, or a related discipline. The fellowship has two purposes: The first is to enable scholars to engage in research that will benefit from the resources of Harvard Business School and the larger Boston scholarly community. About two-thirds of the fellow's time will be available for research of his or her own choosing. A travel fund and a book fund will be provided. The second purpose is to provide an opportunity for the fellow to participate in the activities of Harvard Business School. Approximately one-third of the fellow's time will be devoted to school activities, including attendance of the Business History Seminar, and working with faculty teaching the business history courses offered in the MBA curriculum. The fellow is required to research and write a case, under the direction of a senior faculty member, to be used in one of the business history courses. Finally, the fellow is encouraged to submit an article to Business History Review during his or her year at the School.

Applications should be received no later than October 15, 2010, and submitted to: http://www.hbs.edu/research/faculty-recruiting/faculty-applicants.html. If there are materials that can be sent only in hard copy, please send them to: Walter A. Friedman, Rock Center 104, Harvard Business School, Boston, MA 02163, email: wfriedman@hbs.edu. For full information about the Fellowship and the application process, please consult the appropriate section of the Business History Fellowships site.
