Research Fellowship: Crown Center for Middle East Studies 2024, Brandeis University, October 27, 2023
JUNIOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP: The Crown Center for Middle East Studies is
seeking outstanding scholars of the contemporary Middle East and North
Africa for a residential fellowship to begin September 1, 2024. The
fellowship is for a maximum of two years upon the successful completion of
fellowship requirements in the first year. The fellowship is open to all
disciplines—particularly politics, economics, history, religion, sociology
and anthropology. The fellowship’s goal is to allow untenured early career
scholars the flexibility and means to advance a specific research project
related to the contemporary Middle East and North Africa.
ELIGIBILITY: The 2024–2025 Junior Research Fellowship is open to both
recent PhDs (as a postdoctoral position) and untenured assistant professors
in Middle East-related fields. Applicants must have received their PhD
within the last six years. A PhD must be in hand by September 1, 2024.
TERMS: This fellowship is a one-year appointment beginning September 1,
2024, and ending August 31, 2025, or August 31, 2026 if conditions for
renewal are met. The financial package includes an annual salary of
$70,000, an annual research budget of $4,000, funding for conferences, and
a one-time relocation reimbursement up to $1,500. Fringe benefits will be
available during the appointment period.
Fellows are required to be in residence at the Crown Center during the
tenure of the fellowship and not hold any teaching or service
responsibilities outside of the Center. During their residence, fellows
produce one public-facing Crown Center publication per year and participate
in all Crown Center events, including seminars, lunches, workshops,
meetings, and retreats.
