The Albritton Center for Grand Strategy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University, is inviting applications to its residential postdoctoral fellowship program for the 2022-23 academic year. The Albritton Center is particularly interested in scholars that are engaging with the fundamental questions surrounding grand strategy: How should the national interest be defined? What are the threats to the national interest? How should the United States use its power in response? Applications are invited from scholars of political science, history, and other relevant disciplines.
The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to be in residence at the Bush School for the duration of the fellowship (September 2022 – May 2023). They will be provided with office space and access to the resources of the Bush School and Texas A&M University.
The post-doctoral fellow is expected to complete a manuscript for publication and teach one course to Bush School students. The fellow is also asked to write a short, policy-relevant piece while in residence and participate in Center activities, to include seminars, workshops, and conferences. They will work with an active community of scholars in international affairs, political science, history, and other disciplines at Texas A&M University.
Eligibility: Applicants for the post-doctoral fellowship must have completed their PhD in political science, history, or other relevant discipline before August 1, 2022 to begin the fellowship. Recent PhD recipients are especially encouraged to apply. The fellowship is open to international applicants.
Award information: The post-doctoral fellow will receive a salary of $60,000 (payable monthly), as well as $10,000 in research funding. The post-doctoral fellow will also be eligible for the benefits package available to TAMU employees.
Application process: All applicants must submit a letter of interest (which should address how their research fits with the CGS mission), curriculum vitae, short writing sample (no more than 10,000 words), and a letter of recommendation (preferably by the applicant’s dissertation advisor). Post-doctoral applicants must apply through the TAMU Workday portal (https://tamus.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/TAMU_External/job/College-Station-TAMU/Postdoctoral-Research-Associate_R-044482). Recommendation letters may also be submitted through Interfolio.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with those arriving by Friday, January 14, 2022 receiving priority attention. Selection of the postdoctoral fellow should be completed by March 21, 2022.
