The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University invites applications for a newly defined James M. Osborn Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in British Studies. The fellowship, for the academic year 2008-2009, is open to scholars of British history, literature, society or culture in any period from the Middle Ages through the end of the Twentieth Century who will devote the term of the fellowship to research in the Beinecke Library’s extensive collection of books, manuscripts, prints, and original art concerning the literature, history, and culture of the British Isles. The ten month fellowship provides a stipend of $42,500 and a residential apartment within walking distance of the Library. The Osborn Fellow will be expected to take up residence in New Haven by August 1, 2008, to conduct research in Beinecke Library on a consistent basis, and to participate in the intellectual life of the Yale community through May 31, 2009. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) between September 1, 2001 and January 14, 2008.
