CIPR Post Doctoral Fellow

New Orleans, LA
Open Date:
Sep 26, 2023

The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (CIPR) invites applications for five (5) research fellowships for the Academic Year of 2024-2025, some with program administration duties and others with light teaching. Applications from the social sciences in the fields of international relations, international political economy, comparative politics, political sociology, and policy studies are preferred. Latin American expertise and Spanish or Portuguese fluency required. Fellows will be selected based on intellectual merit, experience, the potential impact of their planned research for CIPR programs, and teaching needs of the host department. Fellowships are one-year, residential, full-time appointments starting in July 2024 with a stipend of $48,940 plus benefits. Travel and moving expenses are not supported. In addition to their planned research, applicants must be prepared to carry out either program administration or adjunct teaching responsibilities. In the program administration track, fellows will be expected to work with CIPR's director in one of the Center’s ongoing research initiatives, including the Commitment to Equity Project and/or Research Group MEGA: Mobilization, Extractivism, and Government Action, and/or to develop programmatic content and projects in Inter-American relations, comparative political economy, citizenship rights, human development, and others. The other fellowships carry a one course per semester adjunct teaching load in the department of the fellow's primary discipline and in the candidate's major subfields, without administrative responsibilities. In both cases, specific responsibilities will be defined jointly during the initial phase of the appointment. Applicants must plan to complete their Ph.D. no later than May 2024. Recent graduates with no longer than three years since receiving their Ph.D. are especially encouraged to apply.
