Senion and Postdoctoral Fellowhips, The Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies at The George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs, Application Deadline February 28

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: IERES SENIOR & POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS 2011-12

Petrach Senior Fellowship in Eurasian Studies. The Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies at The George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs announces a competition for one fellowship designed to “top off” the sabbatical/leave salary or another portable fellowship of a senior scholar for the academic year 2011-12. Fellows are expected to be in residence at IERES (http://www.gwu.edu/~ieresgwu/) for the entire period of the fellowship, to conduct research or writing on an academic project related to Eurasia (including in part Ukraine), and to contribute actively to our lively IERES intellectual community through participation in the institute’s seminars, talks, and other events. There are no teaching obligations. Preferred candidates will be widely recognized as leaders in their disciplines, with a strong record of peer-reviewed publication. In the US, this would usually mean a tenured academic appointment, and in Eurasian systems a degree of doktor nauk. While the Fellow’s research does not have to focus on Ukraine, part of the study should relate directly to it. All disciplines are eligible. Fellows will be awarded a shared office at IERES, university affiliation, library access, limited administrative support, a stipend of $3,300 per month for the period September 2011 – May 2012, and one roundtrip airfare to cover their arrival in and departure from Washington, DC. To apply, candidates should send a cover letter (maximum three pages) describing the proposed research/writing activity to be done at IERES and a CV by email to Caitlin Katsiaficas, caitlin@gwu.edu, with the subject heading “Petrach Senior Fellowship Application.” The deadline for receipt of all application materials is February 28, 2011. Questions may be directed to Ms. Katsiaficas at 202-994-6342. This fellowship is funded by IERES’s William and Helen Petrach Endowment.
