McKennan Postdoc Fellowship

The Robert A. 1925 and Catherine L.McKennan Postdoctoral Fellowship in Anthropology provides promising young scholars with an opportunity to research, write, and teach at Dartmouth college for a period of 2-3 years. In keeping with the four-field nature of our discipline and the department's commitment to an holistic vision of anthropology, postdoctoral fellows rotate between the subfields of  sociocultural, archaeological, biological and linguistic anthropology.
