Committee on Global Thought at Columbia

The newly formed Committee on Global Thought at Columbia University in New York City seeks Post-doctoral Fellows for the academic year 2007-2008.

The goal of the Committee is to provide a space for cross-disciplinary, transnational, and otherwise expansive exploration of the world, including processes of globalization, comparisons past and present, and pressing contemporary issues.

The Committee welcomes applicants from all disciplines, and seeks a mix of fellows from the sciences, social sciences, and humanities to help create a new agenda for global thinking and action.

Fellows will be expected to teach or assist with one undergraduate or graduate course as well as to plan and participate in symposia and other activities of the Committee. The remaining half of the Fellow's time will be devoted to individual research. Salaries will be competitive.

Please send CV, a letter explaining research interests and plans for research and writing during your tenure with the Committee, at least one paper or other suitable evidence of scholarship, and three letters of reference to:

Dr. Joseph Stiglitz
The Committee on Global Thought
814 Uris Hall
