Fellowship: Harvard-Newcomen Postdoc in Business History

The Harvard-Newcomen Postdoctoral Fellowship in Business History is awarded for twelve months’ residence, study, and research at Harvard Business School. 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. A travel fund and a book fund will be provided. The second is to provide an opportunity for the fellow to participate in the activities of Harvard Business School. 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.

Applicants should submit a CV, undergraduate transcript and graduate school record, thesis abstract, and writing sample (such as an article or a book chapter). Applicants should also state the topics, objectives, and design for the specific research to be undertaken. Finally, applicants should indicate the names of three people who will write references on their behalf; these can be submitted on-line, but must come directly from the referee. Applications should be received no later than October 15, 2013 and submitted online.

Please see the HBS Newcomen Fellowship website for full information and submission details.
