Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northwestern

The Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Program in the Buffett Institute for Global Studies invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the study of Turkey in a global or a comparative perspective. Applications are welcome from scholars whose research addresses transnational social processes, problems or conflicts in connection to contemporary Turkey.

The Keyman fellow will be affiliated with both the Keyman Program and an appropriate department in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences or the School of Communication, such as Anthropology; Art, Theory & Practice; Communication Studies; History; Middle East & North African Studies; Performance Studies; Political Science; or Sociology.

Fellowship details

The fellowship will run from September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2018.

The Fellow will pursue a program of independent scholarship and teach one undergraduate class each year during their fellowship. They are expected to be active participants in intellectual activities in the Keyman Program and the Buffett Institute, as well as their affiliated disciplinary departments, and to deliver one public lecture each year.

The salary is $55,000. In addition, the Fellow is eligible for $5,000 per year to fund research and conference travel, and up to $2,000 in reimbursement for allowable relocation expenses in the first year. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible position.

Eligibility

Applicants must have received their Ph.D. between January 1, 2011 and August 31, 2016.

International scholars

International scholars are eligible to apply for the postdoctoral fellowship. A J-1 exchange visitor visa may be offered for the successful candidate, if needed, but the postdoctoral fellowship does not cover expenses for eligible spouse or family members’ visas. In addition, approvals of visas may take quite a long time. In the event that a visa is not ready by the time the postdoc begins, the contractual start date will have to be delayed, resulting in a shortened postdoc term.
