CIRS Post-Doctoral Fellowship

Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar’s Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS) is pleased to announce an opening for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship.

The fellowship will support a recent PhD recipient in any discipline working on the area of the Middle East with priority to those working on the Gulf.

The Fellowship is for a period of one academic year starting in the Fall semester.

The Fellow is expected to devote this time to turning his/her dissertation into a book manuscript for publication.

Applicants must have completed a PhD (in hand) between August 1, and July 31.

The fellowship requires residence at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar.

The Fellow will be given library privileges at University and office space at CIRS, and is expected to participate fully in the academic and intellectual life of the Center, including delivering occasional lectures at CIRS and taking part in the Center’s academic seminars and conferences.

Depending on needs and interests, the Fellow may be invited to teach one course as well.

Compensation, benefits and other terms of employment are highly competitive.

Review of applications begins January 4, and will continue until the position is filled.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and a synopsis of their PhD dissertation.

Also, candidates should provide a statement outlining the precise nature of their intended work during the period of the fellowship, the final product’s significance in terms of the discipline and the body of knowledge, and when the completion of the project for publication may be expected.
