Jobs: Keough-Naughton Fellowship in Irish Studies

With the support of a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant, the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for its faculty fellowship program.  The NEH Keough-Naughton Fellowship will enable an outstanding scholar to continue his or her research while in residence in the Keough-Naughton Institute during the academic year 2019-2020.  The Fellowship is open to scholars in any area of Irish Studies.  The stipend is $55,000.

The NEH Keough-Naughton Fellow will participate in a periodic faculty seminar and present a paper on his or her research during the year.  Apart from the seminar, the Fellow’s only obligation will be to pursue his or her research.  The Fellow will be provided an office in the Keough-Naughton Institute and will be integrated into the Institute’s life, with full library privileges and access to the Institute’s research tools.

Applicants should submit a double-spaced narrative of no more than five pages describing their proposed research, indicating how it builds on existing scholarship, and suggesting how it will benefit from broader interdisciplinary studies.  Applicants should also submit a curriculum vitae and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the Keough-Naughton Institute by January 15, 2019.  Announcement of the successful candidate will be made in March 2019.
