Dissertation Research Fellowship
Library of Congress

The Library of Congress announces the 2012-2013 dissertation
research fellowship in partnership with the Council on Library and
Information Resources (CLIR), funded by The Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation and hosted by the Library's Preservation Directorate. The
one-year fellowship through CLIR supports original-source
dissertation research in the humanities or related social sciences
in the Preservation Directorate's Research and Testing Division
(PRTD). The fellowship is intended for doctoral students whose
dissertation project will benefit from the opportunity to closely
examine the rich and extensive primary sources held by the Library,
working with technical support and expert guidance from PRTD

PRTD is home to several recently renovated science laboratories that
include new capabilities for analyzing the chemical, physical, and
optical properties of objects using cutting-edge instrumentation for
hyperspectral imaging, environmental scanning electron microscopy,
x-ray fluorescence, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and
other techniques. These technologies offer the latest
non-destructive methods of direct examination and analysis of
original-source documents and thereby create the possibility for new
interpretations of those sources.

The one-year fellowship may start between June 1. 2012 and September
1, 2012.

Applications are due Wednesday, April 18, 2012.
