Haslam Post-doctoral Fellowship Program

The Haslam Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established through a generous donation by the Jimmy and Dee Haslam family and received its first fellow in 2011. The doctoral position provides support for a motivated scholar to plan and execute research using the Department of Anthropology resources, primarily the Anthropological Research Facility and/or the extensive collection of donated and documented skeletons of modern Americans. Teaching opportunities may also be available, if desired.¬† Additional funds, such as the Bass Endowment, may be used to support an individual’s research.

For further inquiries regarding the Haslam Postdoctoral Fellowship please contact  Dawnie Steadman.
