America in the World Consortium: 2022-23 Postdoctoral Fellowships
The America in the World Consortium seeks applications from recent Ph.D. recipients for its in-residence Postdoctoral Fellowship Program to begin in August 2022. Applicants will be considered for up to five (5) fellowship positions for up to two (2) years in-residence at one of the three partner institutions:
- Duke University, American Grand Strategy (AGS) Program
- Johns Hopkins University, Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at SAIS
- University of Texas at Austin, Clements Center for National Security
Applicants from all disciplines whose research bears directly on American grand strategy, broadly defined, are welcome to apply. However, preference will be given to applicants with a doctorate in political science, public policy, and history whose research has a strong connection to policy. Additionally, Fellows will be required to play an active role in the host institution’s programs and activities. Additional responsibilities will be by mutual agreement between the Fellow and the AWC directors. For example, in some cases, Fellows will have the opportunity to teach an undergraduate course.
Successful applicants will be able to spend the substantial portion of their time working on their own research and writing projects, while taking advantage of the many academic resources available at their institution.
The America in the World Consortium (AWC) is a dynamic partnership of universities seeking to create a more vibrant debate among policy-interested scholars about America’s role in the world. The organization is committed to preparing the next generation to confront geopolitical challenges and advance American national interests abroad. AWC prioritizes an intellectually diverse research community and supports fellows across a variety of disciplines.
To apply, submit the following:
- a cover letter (in the cover letter, stipulate which consortium school or schools the candidate would wish to reside at during the fellowship);
- a curriculum vitae;
- a graduate school transcript;
- names of 3 referees who would write a letter of recommendation if asked;
- and an article or writing sample representing an existing contribution to the field of American grand strategy, broadly defined.
Note that applicants are required to have received their doctorate by August 1, 2022, before the fellowship commences.
Direct any questions to Alexandra Townsend, the America in the World Consortium Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due no later than December 15, 2021.
