The Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University seeks recent PhDs for one-year (with possibility of renewal for a second year) postdoctoral fellow positions in global security, broadly defined, beginning July 1, 2013. All applicants working in the area of global security are welcome. We are especially interested in those whose work focuses on nontraditional security issues, including (but not restricted to) topics such as cybersecurity, armed non-state actors, and transnational crime. We also encourage applicants whose security-related research intersects with the Institute’s work on global political economy and development. The mission of the Watson Institute is to pursue interdisciplinary research on pressing global issues and to foster more direct engagements between scholarship and policy and public debates. Application materials should include a cover letter, CV, writing sample, and three letters of recommendation. More information is available athttp://watsoninstitute.org/opportunities_postdoc.cfm
Successful candidates will pursue their own research and also contribute to the development of collective and collaborative research at the Institute. They will teach one course per year, chosen in consultation with the relevant undergraduate concentration director.
Salary: $50,000 (12 month) plus individual health and dental coverage if needed.
The committee will begin reviewing applications on January 15, 2013, and expects to finalize selections by the end of February.
Brown University is an AA/EEO employer and especially welcomes applications from women and minority candidates.
