November 08, 2011


The Crown Center for Middle East Studies is offering one-year fellowships to outstanding scholars of Middle East politics, economics, history, religion, or social developments for the 2012-2013 academic year. This fellowship can be either a post-doctoral position for new PhDs or a research fellowship for assistant professors during a year off from teaching. It would allow junior scholars the flexibility and means to advance a specific research project related to the contemporary Middle East.

About the Crown Center

The Crown Center's research interests encompass the twenty-two members of the Arab League, stretching from Morocco to Iraq, as well as Israel, Turkey, and Iran. The Center's research focus extends well beyond Arab-Israeli tensions to include Middle East politics and history, Islamic studies, economic and social developments, and regional security and arms control.

The Center's research staff reflects its broad geopolitical focus. During its six years of operation, experienced researchers with high-level expertise about Egypt, Israel, Palestine, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, GCC and Saudi Arabia have conducted research for the Center. In addition to hosting conferences, seminars, and workshops, the Center has created tools for "real-time" distribution of analyses regarding current developments and events in the Middle East with its "Middle East Brief." The Center also publishes article-length monographs titled “Crown Papers," a peer-reviewed scholarly publication, as well as the “Crown Essay” series which focuses on important debates related to the region. Additionally, the Center's staff teaches undergraduate- and graduate-level courses at Brandeis University.


The 2012-2013 junior research fellowship is open to both recent PhDs (as a post-doctoral position) and assistant professors in Middle East related fields. PhD must be completed by September 1, 2012.


This fellowship is a one-year appointment beginning September 1, 2012 and ending June 30, 2013. The stipend for these 10 months will be $45,000. In addition, funding is available for research, travel, and related expenses. Fringe benefits will be available during the appointment period.

Fellows are expected to be in residence at the Crown Center during the tenure of the fellowship. During their residence, fellows are required to produce a scholarly article related to his/her research project to be submitted to the peer-reviewed "Crown Papers" series, write a Middle East Brief, and participate in all Crown Center seminars, conferences and other events.

Deadline: December 16, 2011
Notification: March 16, 2012
