The Davis Center Postdoctoral Fellowship offers comprehensive research, training, and professional development opportunities for scholars advancing their careers in history and the humanities. 

Fellows pursue their research with support from an interdisciplinary community of experts, and with access to world-class resources. The program provides scholars with experiences and connections that endure well beyond their fellowship year.

For the 2021–2022 academic year, the Davis Center will award one postdoctoral fellowship in history and one postdoctoral fellowship in literature and culture. We welcome research proposals on topics related to the study of Eurasia.

Scholars who do not meet the eligibility requirements for the Postdoctoral Fellowship should consider applying for affiliation via the Visiting Scholars Program
