Clements Center Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Clements Center for National Security at the University of Texas at Austin seeks
applications from recent PhD recipients for its Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
Consistent with the Clements Center’s mission areas of history, strategy, and statecraft,
applicants from all disciplines whose research bears directly on foreign and defense
policy, intelligence, or international security are welcome to apply. Howeover, strong
preference will be given to applicants with a doctorate in history or whose research has a
strong historical component (ancient or modern). Successful applicants will be able to
spend the substantial portion of their time working on their own research and writing
projects, while taking advantage of the many academic resources available at the
University of Texas-Austin. Additionally, Fellows will be required to play an active role
in the Clements Center’s programs and activities; any specific responsibilities will be by
mutual agreement between the Fellow and the Clements Center leadership. Fellows
accepted to the program will be offered a competitive stipend, full use of UT facilities,
and office space at the Clements Center. In some cases Fellows will be welcome to teach
a course at the University of Texas. Each appointment is for one year, and in exceptional
cases may be considered for renewal for a second year.

Applicants should submit a current c.v., a letter of application, graduate school
transcripts, a brief (no more than two-page, single-spaced) statement of proposed
research, and three letters of recommendation. Applications are due no later than
February 2, 2018. Note that applicants are required to have received their doctorate by
August 2018, the date the Postdoctoral Fellowship will commence. Please direct any
questions to Alex Foggett, the Clements Center’s Programs Manager, at
