The Yale Program in Iranian Studies (at the Yale MacMillan Center’s Council on Middle East Studies) accepts applications for the newly-established Ehsan Yarshater Fellowship in Iranian and Persian studies for 2017-18 (renewable for one year).

The Post-Doctoral Associate will teach one course during the year, either in the Fall or the Spring semester, pursue his/her own research, and participate in the activities of the Iranian Studies Program and Council on Middle East Studies. Post-doctoral Associates are expected to be in residence from August 2017 to May 2018. Applicants in all fields of humanities and social and political sciences who have recently received their PhDs or are in the early stages of their academic career may apply. Requirements include a viable research project and teaching an undergraduate seminar in the field of specialization.

We will begin accepting applications immediately with review beginning on January 15, 2017 and continuing until the selections are final.
