The NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia Post-Doctoral Fellowship program is designed to provide a transition to career independence for recent PhD recipients and to provide time to conduct post-PhD research.
Fellows will conduct independent research and writing and regularly attend Jordan Center events (in-person and virtual). Fellows may be given the opportunity to organize a symposium and to teach one course in the department of Russian and Slavic Studies (pending interest from both the candidate and the department). This position will not be overseen by a faculty supervisor.
This is intended to be an in-person fellowship for the 2021-2022 academic year, pending COVID-19-related developments. As such, applicants who do not intend to relocate to New York, should conditions permit, should not apply.
Required education: PhD granted in past five years in History, Comparative Literature, Slavic Literature, Anthropology, Political Science, Sociology, or any other discipline, with a focus on Russia and Russian studies
