fellowship opportunity

I just received notice of a fellowship in which our readers may be interested. The information is below.

The Jeanne and Dan Valente Center for Arts and Sciences at Bentley College, a four-year private university, is now accepting applications for its 2009-20 postdoctoral fellowship. The Center seeks postdoctoral students from arts and sciences disciplines who are working within broad theme identified below. The 2009-10 theme, “Behaving Ourselves: Motivation and Agency Across the Disciplines,” is described at the Valente Center’s website, as is the application process. The Valente Center encourages interdisciplinary projects and work that connects the arts and sciences to business disciplines. Candidates must have PhD in hand by June 30, 2009, may not have received their doctoral degree earlier than September 2006, and must be in residence at Bentley College during the fellowship period. The postdoctoral fellow will receive a total stipend of $40,000 for the nine-month residency as well as office space and borrowing privileges at Bentley and local research libraries, as needed.
