The Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows Program seeks applications from recent PhDs in the humanities and humanistic social sciences “who aspire to careers in administration, management and public service by choice rather than circumstance.” Public Fellows are placed in two-year term staff positions at partnering organizations in government and the nonprofit sector.  Salary and benefits are competitive, and a professional development stipend is included.  Fellows are actively mentored for career paths beyond the academy.

Join Maria LaMonaca Wisdom, Director of Graduate Student Advising and Engagement, and Joseph McNicholas, Director of Research Opportunities at FHI, for lunch and a preliminary conversation on nonacademic career paths for Ph.D.s. At 12:30, we will be joined (via video conference) by John Paul Christy, the Director of Public Programs at ACLS; and by Abigail Langston (Literature PhD ’14), Senior Associate at PolicyLink and an alumna of the Public Fellows program.
