2023 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP
We are now accepting applications for the 2023 Louisville Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship (PostDoc). This fellowship provides early career theological educators with vocational and professional formation through a two-year placement as a visiting scholar/professor. Concurrently, fellows explore their call to be a theological educator as part of LI’s Vocation of the Theological Educator (VTE) Initiative.
The Postdoctoral Fellowship provides a stipend of $30,000 for each of the two years, as well as insurance, housing, and moving benefits (note: postdoctoral placements typically require relocation). Fellows receive ongoing mentorship and join a peer cohort of other fellows at six formational gatherings over the two-year fellowship.
- are scholars based in the United States and Canada who will complete all Ph.D./Th.D. work, defend their dissertation, and receive their degree no later than June 30, 2023
- demonstrate appreciation for the Christian church and a commitment to theological education, and are able to articulate how their doctoral work and other related experiences have prepared them to be a theological educator
- are aware that postdoctoral placements often require relocation in order to match fellows with appropriate schools/departments
Previous LI Doctoral and/or Dissertation Fellows are eligible to apply to be Postdoctoral Fellows. Preference is given to recent doctoral graduates. If you anticipate completing your doctoral work after June 30, 2023, we encourage you to apply next year.
