Call for Applications: Harvard University: Postdoc, Russian & Eurasian Studies
January 10, 2019
The Davis Center for Russian & Eurasian Studies’ Postdoctoral Fellowship Program offers comprehensive research, training, and professional development opportunities for scholars advancing their careers within the social sciences and humanities. Fellows pursue their research with support from an interdisciplinary community of experts, and with access to world-class resources. The program provides scholars with experiences and connections that endure well beyond their fellowship year.
We welcome research proposals on all topics related to the study of Eurasia. This year’s program will not be structured around an overarching theme. We are, however, particularly interested in applications from scholars with an interest in the following:
1. Teaching a course in Russian imperial history, especially from scholars with experience in digital humanities.
2. Topics exploring the political, economic and social connectivity of Central Asia and/or the Caucasus.
