Grant of the WeeK: UT-Austin Clements Center Postdoctoral Fellowship

AHA Staff | Jan 16, 2015

The Clements Center for History, Strategy & Statecraft at the University of Texas at Austin seeks applications from recent PhD recipients for its Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

The Clements Center is a national security research center that seeks to apply the insights of history to the contemporary challenges of statecraft. Applicants from all disciplines whose research bears directly on American foreign policy or international security are welcome to apply, but 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 CV, 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 March 2, 2015. Note that applicants are required to have received their doctorate by August 17, 2015, the date the Postdoctoral Fellowship will commence. Please direct any questions and completed applications to Jacqueline Chandler, the Clements Center’s Programs Manager, at jchandler@austin.utexas.edu.
