Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities


Watson Institute Postdoctoral Fellows Program

The Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University seeks to promote a just and peaceful world through research, teaching, and public engagement. As part of an exciting new phase of growth, the Institute is launching a new postdoctoral fellows program in its core research areas: security, development, and governance. We invite applications from exceptional early career scholars from across the social sciences whose work contributes to one or more of these research areas. Successful candidates will join a growing interdisciplinary community of scholars at the Institute engaged in theoretically and substantively important research that seeks to understand and address some of today's great challenges in ways that are both academically rigorous and relevant to the world.

Applications must be received by November 15, 2013.



Applications Open: Oxford-Princeton Global Leaders Fellowship

They should also show evidence of outstanding analytical and research skills.
