DAAD Postdoc Fellows in International Studies

2018-19 DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellows at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) Johns Hopkins University Washington, DC

The Paul H. Nitze School for Advanced International Studies (SAIS) is pleased to announce the opportunity for outstanding scholars to conduct research in Washington, D.C. on “The United States, Europe, and Global Order.” During the academic year 2018-2019 six post-doctoral fellowships will be awarded for an eleven (11) month period from September 2018 to July 2019.

Fellows are closely integrated into the SAIS academic community and will be affiliated with the SAIS Foreign Policy Institute and the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs. A division of Johns Hopkins University, SAIS is a global institution that provides interdisciplinary professional education to prepare a diverse student body for internationally related positions of responsibility; to foster research, scholarship and cross-cultural exchange; and to contribute knowledge, expertise, and leadership to the global community.

The SAIS Foreign Policy Institute unites the worlds of scholarship and policy in the search for realistic answers to international issues facing the United States and the world. To this end, it organizes research initiatives and study groups, and hosts leaders from around the world as resident or non-resident fellows in fields including international policy, business, journalism, and academia.

The Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs is home to a distinguished faculty of scholars and practitioners working to address some of today’s most complex global challenges. Through its innovative research, curricula, and programs, the Kissinger Center seeks to integrate historical scholarship with rigorous analysis of geostrategy and statecraft.

The Fellowships are funded through a generous grant from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

During the academic year 2018-2019 research and related activities will focus on “The United States, Europe, and Global Order.” Post-doctoral fellows will focus on this subject during a regular series of high-level seminars, peer review sessions, and opportunities for direct engagement with senior foreign policy practitioners and leading scholars of statecraft and world order. Each Fellow is expected to complete a research paper related to this theme during the period of residence.
