Binghamton University's Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (I-GMAP) is pleased to announce the Charles E. Scheidt Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention and welcomes applications for two (2) one-year temporary positions for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Through the generous support of the Charles E. Scheidt Family Foundation, the Post-Doctoral Fellows will work as part of the I-GMAP team to promote and advance interdisciplinary and practitioner-relevant scholarship contributing to improved understanding of and capacities for the prevention of mass atrocities. The three-fold mission of Binghamton University's I-GMAP is to:
1) Bridge the gap between scholars and practitioners
2) To break down barriers that prevent disciplines from working together effectively
3) To bring all the resources of a modern research university to bear to advance atrocity prevention
To that end, fellows will be expected to benefit from and contribute to the full range of I-GMAP activities. The Post-Doctoral Fellows may take full advantage of the welcoming and vibrant intellectual atmosphere of the Institute to advance their individual prevention-focused research agendas. This may include work on a book manuscript and/or peer-reviewed journal articles, but is also expected to include policy briefs, technical reports, training or educational workshops, and/or public media publications. Fellows will also be expected to teach one course at the advanced undergraduate/Master's level in support of I-GMAP's academic programming, to present at least one public lecture, and to participate in the full range of I-GMAP activities.
The Fellowship supports recent recipients of terminal degrees in any relevant academic discipline demonstrating potential to contribute to atrocity prevention. Applicants must have their terminal degree conferred by the Fellowship start date of August 2021. Recent PhDs from any discipline (including but not limited to Africana studies, Anthropology, Asian studies, Business Administration, Computer Science, Engineering, Environmental Science, Geography, Gender Studies, History, Human Rights, Indigenous Studies, International Development, International Finance, International Relations, Latin American studies, Political Science, Psychology, Public Administration, and Sociology). Must have degree prior to August 2021.
Under appropriate circumstances applications by recent recipients of the J.D. will also be considered. Qualified applicants currently holding temporary or tenure-track positions are also welcome to apply. For the 2021-22 academic year, I-GMAP particularly welcomes applicants whose research programs advance interdisciplinary approaches to prevention.
Offers of employment may be contingent upon successful completion of a pre-employment background check and verification of degree(s) and credentials.
