The Institute for Comparative Literature and Society (ICLS) is looking for a GSAS Fellow to assist with program development and grant writing during the 2015-2016 academic year. ICLS has two projects that the Fellow will focus on in spring 2016: the development of a proposal for an M.A. program in Translation Studies and the grant-writing for our Medical Humanities initiative.

Under the supervision of the Assistant Director, the Fellow will:
