The Clements Center for National Security at the University of Texas at Austin seeks applications from current PhD candidates for its Predoctoral Fellowship Program.
Consistent with the Clements Center’s mission areas of history, strategy, and statecraft, applicants from all disciplines whose research bears directly on foreign and defense policy, intelligence, or international security are welcome to apply. However, strong preference will be given to applicants pursuing a doctorate in history or whose research has a strong historical component (ancient or modern). This fellowship is designed to help expedite dissertation completion, so applicants should be in the dissertation writing phase and within one year (or in exceptional cases two years) of anticipated dissertation submission. Successful applicants will be able to spend the substantial portion of their time working on their own research and writing projects, while taking advantage of the many academic resources available at the University of Texas-Austin. Additionally, Fellows will be required to play an active role in the Clements Center’s programs and activities; any specific responsibilities will be by mutual agreement between the Fellow and the Clements Center leadership. Fellows accepted to the program will be offered a competitive stipend, full use of UT facilities, and office space at the Clements Center. Each appointment is for one year.
Applicants should submit a current c.v., a letter of application, graduate school transcripts, a brief (no more than two-page, single-spaced) statement of proposed research, and three letters of recommendation. Please visit the Clements Center’s website for complete application instructions (see https://goo.gl/Rwd5bs). Applications are due no later than March 3, 2017. Please direct any questions to Jacqueline Chandler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
