POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS

The Harriman Institute postdoctoral fellowships allow junior scholars to spend a 2-year term in residence at Columbia University in New York. All fellows are assigned a faculty mentor. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to concentrate on their own research and writing; to give a brownbag seminar on their research; and to be active participants in the Institute’s scholarly community and events. All postdoctoral fellows receive university IDs that provide access to the full range of resources within the Columbia library system, and the Institute makes every effort to provide desk space for all postdoctoral fellows. The Institute provides funds to sponsor workshops, conferences, and special events planned by fellows around their particular interests.
 
The Harriman Institute has two types of postdoctoral fellowships: general (three positions, two-year appointments) and Ukrainian Studies (one position, two-year appointment). The next call for applications to the Ukrainian Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship will be Fall 2019.
 
Eligibility for the 2019 competition is restricted to those who have received the Ph.D. between January 1, 2017 and June 30, 2019 and do not hold a tenure-track position. All fellows must successfully defend and deposit their dissertations prior to the commencement of the fellowship. 

Information on each program and application details are posted below. All applications are due by January 15, 2019.
