Deadline – Monday, April 10 by 5 pm
The Program in Jewish Studies and the Department of History are happy to announce the competition for the second annual Jewish Studies Archive Summer Fellowship, which provides a $4,000 fellowship for the summer. The Fellowship requires 130 hours of work over the summer (or approximately 13 hours per week, which can be allocated in whatever way works best for the student's and supervisor's schedules) in the CU Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections. The Fellow will work with librarians and archivists on projects such as researching, designing, and curating exhibits, digital humanities initiatives, and other programs based on archival materials. For students with interests in American history or Jewish Studies, a portion of the required 130 hours may also be devoted to original research drawing on archival materials. For more information, please visit the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections page.
CU graduate students from relevant disciplines (History or Jewish Studies) are welcome to apply; however, preference will be given to candidates with experience in and/or interest in Jewish Studies, American history and culture, and/or archival work. Competency in foreign languages would be useful and should be mentioned in an application, though this is not a prerequisite for the application.
To apply, please submit a brief letter of application (no more than a single page) that describes your current research interests, any relevant experience or academic studies, as well as your interests in working in the archive, name of primary advisor, whom we may contact, along with a current CV to both email addresses below by Monday, April 10 by 5PM.
