fellowships

Postdoctoral Research

The John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics seeks applications from junior scholars and recent Ph.D. graduates for a one-year, renewable postdoctoral fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. The research associates will spend most of their time pursuing research and writing on their own projects. They will also serve the intellectual life of the Danforth Center on Religion and Politics and the University through teaching and participating in the Center’s biweekly interdisciplinary seminar. Washington University in St. Louis is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer and especially encourages members of underrepresented groups to apply. Please see here for the full description and application instructions.

Dissertation Completion

The John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics has decided to build on the strengths of its two-year postdoctoral program. To that end, it expanded its competition for the postdoctoral program, which will take the place, at least for this year, of the dissertation completion fellowships. We will not accept applications for dissertation completion fellowships until further notice offered on this website.

Travel and Research Support

Independent of the two fellowship programs, the Center offers limited funding to Washington University undergraduate and graduate students for travel to academic conferences and research archives. For more information, please see here.
