The Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies (WCED) at the University of Michigan invites postdoctoral scholars to apply for the Emerging Democracies Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship supports research on the broad historical, political, economic, and societal conditions under which democracies emerge—and autocracies endure.
Three awards are available in 2017-18. Emerging Democracies Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to focus on their own research, participate in WCED workshops and events, and present one public lecture during their fellowship year, while in residence at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
Candidates will be required to submit:
- A two-page research plan that outlines the research project and how the fellow will spend his/her time during the fellowship year
- Curriculum Vitae
- A scholarly writing sample, such as a dissertation chapter, conference paper, or journal article
- Two letters of recommendation
Fellowship applications must be received by January 15, 2017, 11:59 pm EST. Applicants will be notified in March 2017. The fellowship period is from September 2017 – May 2018.
