Dr. Malathy Singh Visiting Fellowship


The South Asian Studies Council at the MacMillan Center invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Associate position at Yale University for the 2024-2025 academic year. Candidates must have research and teaching experience relevant to modern and contemporary South Asia, in the humanities or social sciences.

During the two semesters of this appointment, the Post-Doctoral Associate will teach one course related to their interests per semester, pursue their own research, and participate in the activities of South Asian Studies Council. Selected Post-doctoral Associates are expected to be in residence in New Haven, Connecticut for the full duration of the appointment to take an active part in the intellectual exchange with other members of the Program and the MacMillan Center. Compensation is competitive and includes benefits and health insurance.

All applicants must have completed their PhD by the time of appointment. Graduate students who are working on their PhDs may apply, but must present proof of having completed and filed their dissertations, even if awaiting formal conferral of the PhD degree. Fluency in English is required, as is in-depth knowledge of at least one South Asian language.

All information from the applicant should be submitted electronically through Interfolio: http://apply.interfolio.com/138542

Applicants should submit a cover letter; a one-page description of research plans; a draft of a course syllabus and a title and brief summary of a second course; and a CV. Letters of reference are not required at this initial stage but will be requested later.

We will accept applications immediately with review beginning on March 1, 2024 and continuing until the selections are final.
