Radcliffe Fellowship

Radcliffe fellows are exceptional scientists, writers, scholars, public intellectuals, and artists whose work is making a difference in their professional fields and in the larger world.

Based in Radcliffe Yard—a sanctuary in the heart of Harvard University—fellows join a uniquely interdisciplinary and creative community. A fellowship at Radcliffe is an opportunity to step away from usual routines and dive deeply into a project. With access to Harvard’s unparalleled resources, Radcliffe fellows develop new tools and methods, challenge artistic and scholarly conventions, and illuminate our past and our present.

Throughout the year, fellows convene regularly to share their work in progress. Coming from diverse disciplines and perspectives, they challenge each other’s ideas and support each other’s ambitions. Many say that it is the best year of their professional lives.


The online application for the 2020–2021 fellowship year is now available.

The deadline for applications in humanities, social sciences, and creative arts is September 12, 2019.

The deadline for applications in science, engineering, and mathematics is October 3, 2019.

Job Description: The Alcohol Research Group, in association with the School of Public Health, University of California Berkeley, is currently accepting applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowships sponsored by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) for research training in alcohol studies. Fellowships at ARG provide research training in the study of alcohol use and problems, and are oriented toward the pursuit of basic and applied socio-behavioral and epidemiological research. Training focuses specifically on study of the prevalence, distribution, etiology, and treatment (both formal and informal) of alcohol use disorders and related problems. However, some focus is devoted to drug use and drug-related problems. Health disparities are a central theme of both our training program and ARG broadly. Current annual stipends range from $50,004 to $54,756, depending on experience, and we provide health insurance and travel funds. Additional employment is often available. Applicants must be either a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident in order to apply. Please visit our website at www.arg.org/training for more information about our program and how to apply. Applications must be received by June 30, 2019 to be considered for a start date between August 2019 and May 2020.
