Yale University, USA invites applications for the 2018 International Security Studies Henry Chauncey Jr. Postdoctoral Fellowships. The Fellowships bring outstanding advanced doctoral candidates at other universities to New Haven for a year in residence at ISS.
Here, they can take advantage of Yale’s resources and scholars to improve and complete their research. ISS’s weekly colloquium forms the heart of academic community, and the predoctoral fellows are encouraged to attend regularly and present their work. They seek candidates in the fields of international history, security and strategic studies; if a suitable candidate is available, one of the fellowships is designated for naval and maritime studies.
Starting in 2017, ISS will also host one predoctoral fellow in the Henry A. Kissinger Visiting Scholars Program. Please see the website of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy for details. Information about the current fellows can be found here.
