Broadening the Job Search: Why Humanities Postdocs Matter

Thursday, 27 October 2016
12:00 - 2:00 pm, Library West 212 (Scott Nygren Scholars Studio)


The UF Humanities Center is hosting a grant and fellowship writing workshop on the topic of postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities. The workshop will provide a general introduction to postdoctoral fellowships, share lessons from former postdoctoral fellows, and provide suggestions on how to craft an application from the perspective of the postdoctoral fellowship reviewer.


Overall, students will get insight into how to present themselves most effectively at this transitional phase – and the balance they should make in their applications between their dissertations and new areas of research at this early stage. Participants will gain some perspective as to what makes the top applications in very competitive pools stand out.
