The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) offers one award of six months for post-doctoral scholars at the institute in Amman through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The fellowship supports research in the humanities and disciplines of the social sciences that have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods. Fields of research include modern and classical languages, linguistics, literature, history, jurisprudence, philosophy, archaeology, comparative religion, ethics, and the history, criticism, and theory of the arts. Social and political scientists are encouraged to apply. Research topics should contribute to scholarship in Near Eastern studies.

This program does not support work in the creative or performing arts, research undertaken in pursuit of an academic degree, the preparation of textbooks, projects that focus on pedagogical theory, research in educational methods and practice, or cognitive psychology. Nor does the program support projects that are directed at persuading an audience to a certain political, philosophical, religious, or ideological point of view, projects that advocate a particular program of social action or change, or projects that examine controversial issues without taking into account competing perspectives.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent professional training at the time of application. They must be U.S. citizens or have lived in the United States for the three years immediately preceding the application deadline.

Awards cover transportation by a U.S. carrier, accommodation and research facilities at ACOR, and a monthly stipend. The maximum award amount for six months is $25,200. Awards must be used between May 15, 2018 and June 30, 2019.
