The Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, DC is accepting applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship for Academic Year 2020/2021.
About the Opening
In 2018, Johns Hopkins SAIS partnered with a team of scholar-practitioners from Duke University and University of Texas-Austin to launch the America in the World consortium. That consortium aims to prepare the next generation to confront geopolitical challenges and understand American national interests abroad. The fellow will be expected, in addition to pursuing his or her own research and writing, to contribute to the intellectual life of the consortium and participate in its programming.
The successful candidate is expected to be in residence and will be offered a competitive stipend and use of office space in the Kissinger Center in Washington, DC. They will also have access to Johns Hopkins University's libraries and facilities. The fellow will begin their one-year position in July 2020.
About the Center
Established in 2016, the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs (HKC) is home to distinguished faculty of scholars and practitioners working to address some of today's most complex global challenges. Through innovative curricula, research, and programs, the center aims to revitalize scholarship in international, diplomatic, and military history. The center examines the changing global order through a renewed focus on geostrategy, great power politics, and war and peace.
SAIS is a global institution that offers students an international perspective on today's critical issues. For 75 years, Johns Hopkins SAIS has produced leaders, thinkers, and practitioners of international relations, whose ideas and research inform and shape policy. SAIS offers a global perspective across three campus locations: Bologna, Italy; Nanjing, China; and Washington, DC. The school's interdisciplinary curriculum is strongly rooted in the study of international economics, international relations, and regional studies; the goal of study at SAIS is to prepare students to address the multifaceted policy challenges in the world today.
