Pre and Post-Doctoral Fellowships:
The Center for Foreign Policy and Peace Research (CFPPR) located at Bilkent University seeks applications from ABD and recent PhD recipients for its Pre and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
The main purpose of the CFPPR is to help develop agendas and promote policies that contribute to the understanding of peace, security, and development. The Center also aims to provide a platform for homegrown conceptualizations of international relations and foreign policy research. Applicants from all disciplines whose research bears directly on International Relations are welcome to apply, but strong preference will be given to applicants whose research ties in most closely with the Center’s aims.
Fellows will be able to spend a substantial portion of their time working on their own research and writing projects, while taking advantage of the many academic resources available at Bilkent University. Additionally, Fellows will be required to play an active role in the Center’s programs and activities, including regular seminars and workshops, and the production of the Center’s journal All Azimuth. Fellows accepted to the program will be offered a competitive stipend, full use of Bilkent facilities, and office space at the Center. The fellows will also be expected to apply for research grants on behalf of the Center in coordination with the affiliated faculty. Therefore, experience in project writing for grants is an asset. In some cases fellows may be given the opportunity to teach a course at Bilkent University. Each appointment is for one year, with consideration for renewal for a second year.
Applicants should send a CV, cover letter, research proposal, and names of two references to Dr. Ersel Aydinli at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Please indicate the position you are applying for (pre or post-doctoral fellowship). Deadline for applications is December 15th, 2018. Expected starting date for the positions is January 2019.
