Post-doctoral Fellowship: Israeli Inter-University Academic Partnership in Russian and East European Studies

Deadline: January 27, 2013

The Israeli Inter-University Academic Partnership in Russian and East European Studies is offering a small number of highly competitive postdoctoral fellowships in the field of Russian and East European Studies for the 2013-2014 academic year. These fellowships are offered to researchers across many disciplines in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences (broadly defined), and will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence.

Postdoctoral fellowships are offered to young scholars who have received their PhD degree no earlier than 2006 and no later than June 2013. Postdoctoral fellows will be awarded 92,500 NIS per year (equivalent to approximately $25,000). These grantees will be required to present two public lectures at their host institution during the fellowship year. In some cases, the fellowships will entail a teaching commitment at the host university.

The fellows will be selected by an international academic committee and then placed in one of the partner universities. Fellows may apply for one additional year of funding.

Applicants are requested to submit their curriculum vitae (no longer than four pages), a detailed statement of current research interests (up to 2000 words), one writing sample (no longer than 25 pages) and two letters of recommendation (to be submitted directly by the recommenders by e-mail). All materials must be submitted in English and state clearly that the application refers to a POSTDOCTORAL fellowship. In addition, applicants must state if they are applying for other sources of funding for the fellowship period.

Please send application materials by e-mail in PDF/DOC/DOCX format to iuap@post.tau.ac.il with CC to crees@post.tau.ac.il.
