The Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies at Cornell University will award a Postdoctoral Fellowship for the 2016-17 academic year in the areas of foreign policy, security, and diplomacy.
The Einaudi Center, established in 1961, helps to stimulate, support, and coordinate Cornell's work in and about the world, and provides a forum for a broad dialogue that cuts across the disciplines and serves to internationalize the university's research, teaching, and outreach agenda. For additional information on the Einaudi Center, visit www.einaudi.cornell.edu.
The fellowship will provide opportunities for research and teaching in the areas of foreign policy, security, and diplomacy. We seek to attract an outstanding junior scholar from anywhere in the world whose work demonstrates excellence in the social sciences or humanities and addresses questions of lasting importance.
The primary responsibilities of the fellow include research and publication of his/her work. The fellow is expected to interact with undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty, give a public lecture, teach one undergraduate course in the spring semester, contribute to the intellectual life of the Einaudi Center, and participate in its collective activities and development. A member of the Center's Foreign Policy Forum will serve as a mentor during the fellowship and will meet on a regular basis with the fellow.
The stipend will be $45,000. The fellowship begins in August with a term of one year. The fellowship will provide office space and access to Cornell's facilities. The fellow must be in residence at Cornell in Ithaca, New York. The fellow is eligible for employee benefits, including health insurance.
Applicants should include a cover letter that describes their research interests, a separate 1-2 page research proposal, and a CV, and should arrange to have two referees submit letters of recommendation. Please submit your application electronically by January 4, 2016 to http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5962.
Hirokazu Miyazaki, Director of the Einaudi Center and Professor of Anthropology, chairs the selection committee. Preference will be given to a recent recipient of a doctoral degree. Finalists may be asked to participate in a telephone/Skype interview. Cornell University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action educator and employer, and we strongly encourage applications from woman and minority candidates.
