Position Announcement: Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Italian Academy in “Emotion, Embodiment and the History of Art and Music” — Deadline December 8, 2014

Call For Applications

Fellowships 2015-16; Deadline is Monday, December 8, 2014

The Italian Academy invites applications for a limited number of positions in its 2015-16 Fellowship program, which will be devoted to the project “Emotion, Embodiment and the History of Art and Music: Aesthetics, History and Anthropology.”

Given the exceptional number of recent applications addressing the relationship between these topics, the Academy has decided to dedicate an entire year to them. The aim is to bring together philosophers, anthropologists, and historians of culture, especially of the visual arts and music. Some members of the working group have already been selected from last year’s group of candidates.

In evaluating this year’s projects, special consideration will be given to proposals in the neurosciences relevant to the Academy’s ongoing project in Humanities and Neuroscience.

Fellowships are open to both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens at the post-doctoral and faculty level. Applications are encouraged from countries beyond Europe.

Fellows receive a stipend, health benefits, travel allowance and an office in the Academy.

Deadline: Monday, December 8, 2014.
