Deadline: April 6, 2012
The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, which operates under the auspices of International Security Studies, awards one or more Henry Chauncey Jr. ’57 Postdoctoral Fellowships each spring. These fellowships begin each September with a term of one academic year. By mutual agreement of the fellow and ISS, the fellowship may be renewable for a second year.
These fellowships will provide opportunities for research and teaching in the field of “grand strategy” broadly defined. Fellows must be in residence at Yale, and must have successfully defended their doctoral dissertation before the appointment begins. The Program welcomes applications from both mid-career and junior scholars. Scholars who have previously held an ISS fellowship are eligible to apply.
Fellows will be expected to conduct their own research and to teach at least one course on a subject relevant to grand strategy during each year in which they hold the fellowship. The stipend will be at least $50,000. The fellowship will provide shared office space and access to Yale facilities as well as membership in the Yale Health Plan.
Please submit vita, a 5-page research proposal (describing how the fellowship will be used), transcripts, a short (no more than 50 page) writing sample, and three letters of reference to: Igor Biryukov, Senior Administrative Assistant, International Security Studies, Yale University, P.O. Box 208353, New Haven, CT 06520-8353.
The deadline for receipt of application materials is the first Friday of April. Finalists may be asked to visit Yale for an on-campus interview, or to participate in a telephone interview. Yale University is an AA/EOE. Female, minority and handicapped candidates, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
