New Prize Fellowship in Economics, History, and Politics

Harvard University announces a new program of three-year postdoctoral fellowships in economics, history, and politics, to be held at the university between 2011 and 2016. In the words of the announcement, The fellowships are intended "to encourage outstanding scholarship within and across the disciplinary limits of economics, history, politics and related subjects. We particularly encourage the nomination of scholars whose work addresses questions of lasting importance to the understanding of economic change." Further,
The Program seeks outstanding candidates early in their scholarly careers, and is looking for truly extraordinary scholars. We expect that candidates will have completed their routine training for advanced study and will be far along in the dissertation stage, able to submit samples of independent work (articles, papers, dissertation chapters) in support of their candidacies. If still pursuing the Ph.D., Prize Fellows should be prepared to finish their degrees before becoming fellows. If already a recipient of the Ph.D., they should not be more than two years past the degree at the time the fellowship commences. 
Candidates for Prize Fellowships must be nominated, generally by those under whom they have studied. Applications are not accepted from candidates themselves. The program requires that all submissions (letters of nomination, letters of recommendation, and the applicant’s CV, written work, and proposal of study) be submitted electronically through a link on the website (not via email). For information about making a nomination (nominators will need a username and password supplied by the office), please contact Jessica Barnard at ehppf@fas.harvard.edu.

The deadline for nominations for the 2011 academic year is October 15, 2010, and for receipt of materials, November 1, 2010.

Industries as different as tourism, retail, and manufacturing were plunged into disarray by travel restrictions, broken supply chains, and quarantines.
