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.
