CIPR Searches for 3 Post-Doctoral Fellows

November 1st, 2013

The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (CIPR) invites applications for three (3) research fellowships for the Academic Year of 2014-2015, two with program administration duties and one with light teaching. Applications from the social and historical sciences in the fields of international relations, international political economy, comparative politics, political sociology, and policy studies are encouraged. Latin American expertise and Spanish or Portuguese fluency required. Fellows will be selected based on intellectual merit, experience, the potential impact of their planned research for CIPR programs, and teaching needs of the host department.

Fellowships are one-year, residential, full-time appointments with a stipend of $47,500 plus benefits. In addition to their planned research, applicants must be prepared to carry out either program administration or adjunct teaching responsibilities. In the program administration track, fellows will be expected to work with CIPR’s director to develop programmatic content and projects in Inter-American relations, comparative political economy, citizenship rights, human development, and others. The other fellowship carries a one course per semester adjunct teaching load in the department of the fellow’s primary discipline and in the candidate’s major subfields, without administrative responsibilities. In both cases, specific responsibilities will be defined jointly during the initial phase of the appointment. Applicants must plan to complete their Ph.D. no later than May 2014. Recent graduates with no longer than three years since receiving their Ph.D. are especially encouraged to apply.

Please send a curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing your research interests and fit to the program and teaching experience, a graduate transcript, two recommendation letters, a writing sample, and teaching evaluations if available to Research Fellowship Search, Center for Inter- American Policy and Research, 100 Jones Hall, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA 70118-5698.
