The Mershon Center for International Security Studies (https://mershoncenter.osu.edu), within the College of Arts and Sciences, seeks up to three two-year Postdoctoral Scholars to join our team starting the 2022 academic year.
The Mershon postdoctoral scholars support research on international, national, and human security in a global context. We understand international security from a wide range of perspectives, approaches, and substantive foci. Consequently, successful applicants may come from a variety of disciplines that engage international, national, and human security broadly conceived, including anthropology, communications, economics, geography, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, public affairs/administration, public policy, sociology, and other disciplines that engage international security. We especially welcome applications from scholars whose work explicitly integrates knowledge across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Special consideration will be given to applicants whose work will advance the center’s research related to international, national, and human security.
Successful applicants will be expected to devote approximately 10 hours per week to center related activities. Postdoctoral scholars will be mentored and supported in pursuing their individual research agendas during their remaining time. Responsibilities to the Center may include coordinating and supporting Center research and programming activities as well as opportunities to collaborate on Mershon Scholar projects. The two-year term begins August 15, 2022.
The Mershon Center provides an institutional home for campus-wide collaboration among departments, programs, institutes, faculty and students at The Ohio State University engaged in work pertaining to international security broadly construed. Activities include conferences, roundtables, and speaker series
Postdoctoral Scholars at the Mershon Center will pursue their own research and participate in the activities of the Center. Because scholars are expected to be fully integrated with the intellectual life of the Center, they must plan to physically reside in the vicinity of The Ohio State University.
Required: Ph.D. in appropriate field related to security studies by June 30, 2022.
Application materials should include a cover letter describing the research agenda for the two year appointment and how it supports the mission of the Mershon Center, current CV, writing sample, and three professional references.
