The Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought at Yeshiva University invites applications for the Tikvah Postdoctoral Fellowship. One fellow will be appointed for the 2015-2016 academic year, upon the approval of Yeshiva's provost, the director of the Straus Center and a co-hosting academic department. The fellowship is open to all scholars whose work relates to the intellectual heritage of the West, including, but not limited to, fields such as politics, philosophy, Jewish studies, literature, history, economics, religious studies, theology and the sciences.
The fellowship provides an annual stipend of $70,000, supplemented by a complete benefits package and administrative support. The Tikvah Fellow will play a major role in the intellectual environment of the Straus Center by influencing and participating in Straus Center public events, mentoring Yeshiva students and partnering with the director of the Straus Center in constructing and teaching a unique interdisciplinary course for honors undergraduate students. The Tikvah Fellow will also be co-hosted by a Yeshiva academic department and will teach within this department one course every academic year.
In recognition of the unique academic promise embodied by the fellowship awardee, time and funding will also be provided for the Tikvah Fellow to engage in research, writing and publishing, and to forge connections with scholars both at Yeshiva and with senior scholars throughout the world. Following the conclusion of the first year, the Tikvah Fellowship, subject to the approval of Yeshiva's provost and the Straus Center's director, can be renewed for an additional two years.
Applicants should submit an application letter articulating their unique suitability for this fellowship and their interest in furthering the mission of the Straus Center in particular and Yeshiva University in general; a curriculum vitae with a list of publications; an example of published work; syllabi of courses taught, designed or planned; and several letters of recommendation.
Applications should be submitted by no later than January 15, 2015 to the Office of the Provost, Yeshiva University, 500 West 185th Street, Belfer Hall 1304, New York, NY 10033.
