Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Havighurst Center

Postdoctoral fellowships are awarded annually by the Havighurst Center. Fellowships are given in all areas of academic study related to Russia and other post Soviet countries, including history, politics, music, culture, art, architecture, religion, literature, and daily life.

The fellowships are designed for junior scholars of exceptional promise. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to pursue their research agenda for a calendar year with the support of a competitive salary and up to $2,000 for research support.

Fellowships are for one year, but may be renewed for a second year. Fellows normally are expected to teach four 15 week courses in the field of their primary research interest per year and to assist in developing Havighurst programs in the area of their interest. Fellows must have their Ph.D. (or Kandidat nauk) in hand by the beginning of their fellowship, and those without native ability in English must have a demonstrated capability to lecture in English.

Fellowships are open to applicants from all countries. The areas that the Center is interested in will change annually, and candidates are encouraged to contact the center directly before making an application.

Candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a one page description of their research proposal, a description of each of the courses they would like to teach, and three letters of reference--in English--to The Havighurst Center, Fellowship Program, Harrison Hall, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, 45056. For best consideration, applications should be received by November 1 to be considered for the following academic year. Queries may be addressed to havighurstcenter@muohio.edu. Miami University is an equal opportunity employer and applications from female and minority scholars are strongly encouraged.
