Postgrad Project Management Fellowships

The Spatial Humanities Initiative offers two full-time, benefits-eligible Project Management Fellowships each year to recent Rice humanities doctoral graduates. Students in their final year of study may apply for one-year positions the year after graduation. They will serve as project managers on up to four projects, which might entail working with faculty, programmers, geographers, and librarians; learning and implementing new technologies; establishing workflows and ensuring deadlines are met; training and overseeing student workers; establishing and maintaining web sites; and other tasks specific to the projects. The HRC Director and Associate Director, as well as the faculty leads on the projects and members of the library staff, will offer guidance and support to the Project Manager Fellows. These positions will bolster graduates’ CVs for both the academic and non-academic sectors, introduce them to new career trajectories, connect them with scholars and other professionals outside of Rice University, and provide them with support as they prepare for job markets.
