International Visiting Ph.D. Fellowships: Resisting the Path to Genocide
Resisting the Path to Genocide, a Dornsife 2020 Research Cluster at the University of Southern California (USC), offers short-term funding for one visiting Ph.D. candidate per semester.
We are currently seeking applications for the year 2013, whether for spring or early fall.
The grant amount will be between $3000 and $4000 and shall allow the candidate to conduct research at USC for four weeks. (The amount of the grant may vary due to variations in national and international travel expenses.)
We are accepting applications from current Ph.D. candidates at any university, from any relevant discipline, who are working on a subject relevant to the clusterís activities.
(Information about the questions and the scope of the research cluster can be found at http://dornsife.usc.edu/2020-resistance)
An interdisciplinary committee of faculty members involved with the research cluster will select the candidate, who will be chosen on the basis of:
- how closely the candidateís research relates to the topic of genocide resistance, and can contribute to scholarly discussion of genocide resistance within the research cluster
- the extent to which the use of USCís resources will enable the candidate to further his or her ongoing research, or to conduct a smaller research project during the length of his or her stay at USC
USC is the home of internationally unique research resources, including 52,000 audio visual testimonies of Holocaust survivors at the Shoah Foundation Institute archive, a Holocaust and genocide studies collection with 11,000 primary and secondary sources, and a Special Collection containing papers of Jewish emigrants including the Lion Feuchtwanger collection. In addition, the Greater Los Angeles area is home for one of the largest genocide survivor communities (Armenia, Holocaust, Cambodia, Guatemala, etc.) in the world.
The fellow will be expected to provide the cluster with fresh perspectives, to play a role in the cluster activities, and to give a paper at one of the internal cluster workshops. We aim to enhance discussion of genocide resistance and foster a network of scholars.
Candidates should submit a CV, a research proposal including a project outline and methodology, and one letter of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for applications is February, 15th, 2013. Please contact Alida Liberman (email@example.com), graduate research assistant for the cluster, for further information.
