Wenner-Gren Foundation: Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowships 2015

Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowships support the writing-up of already completed research. The fellowship is awarded to scholars in the earlier stages of their careers, when they frequently lack the time and resources to develop their research for publication.

The Foundation supports research that demonstrates a clear link to anthropological theory and debates, and promises to make a solid contribution to advancing these ideas. There is no preference for any methodology, research location, or subfield. The Foundation particularly welcomes proposals that employ a comparative perspective, can generate innovative approaches or ideas, and/or integrate two or more subfields.

Funding & Duration

Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowships are nonrenewable, and provide US $40,000 (approx. AUD $51,000) of financial support for twelve months of continuous full-time writing.

Applicants requesting shorter time periods will receive a pro-rated award as appropriate (e.g., a six-month project would be awarded $20,000, or approx. AUD $25,500).


Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent at the time of application.

Applicants must have received a Ph.D. or equivalent within ten years of the application deadline.

Qualified scholars are eligible without regard to nationality, institutional, or departmental affiliation although preference is given to applicants who are untenured or do not yet have a permanent academic position.
