The Erikson Institute for Education and Research of the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, MA invites applications for the Winter/Spring 2023 Erikson Scholar-in-Residence. The Erikson Institute bridges the clinical work of the Austen Riggs Center, which treats patients with complex psychiatric disorders, and the wider academic and professional communities. Erikson Scholars engage in interdisciplinary work that spans a broad range of psychiatric, social, cultural and theoretical issues.

Scholars become part of the clinical and intellectual life of the Center through work on a proposed project, and presentations to practitioners and scholars in the community. Applications from the fields of medicine, psychiatry, genomics, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, anthropology, history, law, literary criticism, political science, sociology and other disciplines in the arts and sciences are welcome. The term is for 3.5 months in either the fall or spring semester and includes housing, a stipend, administrative support, and access to the Center’s library.

To Apply, please send:

  • A letter of interest
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Two letters of recommendation
