Arizona State University’s Melikian Center for Russian, Eurasian and East European Studies invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship to begin in July 2018. The one-year fellowship is open to early-career scholars who received their PhD in or after June 2016, whose work combines regional focus with global relevance. As well as conducting their own research, the Melikian postdoctoral fellow will teach two seminar classes at ASU’s Barrett Honors College; participate in Melikian Center workshops and events; and contribute to the Center’s public profile through community programming, grant-writing, and/or generating content for the Center’s online presence. Post-doctoral appointments at ASU do not offer tenure, but may be renewed annually, subject to funding.
