CIPR Postdoctoral Fellowship
7025 Freret Street
Nov 7, 2022
The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (CIPR) at Tulane University seeks visiting research fellows for the 2023-2024 academic year. The Center supports empirical research in the fields of international relations, international political economy, comparative politics, political sociology, and policy studies. Latin American expertise and Spanish or Portuguese fluency are required. Fellows will be selected based on intellectual merit, experience, and the potential impact of their planned research for CIPR programs. Scholars are expected to hold a PhD. Current PhD students, and recent PhD graduates are generally not appropriate candidates.
Fellows will pursue research and contribute to the intellectual life of their disciplinary department, CIPR, and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. They are expected to participate in weekly CIPR seminars and workshops, as well as lectures, conferences, and other events organized by the Center. Fellows will collaborate with resident faculty and students on projects of mutual interest in addition to developing their independent research agendas on related topics, as well as mentor junior colleagues at the Center when possible.
Fellowships are for one or two semesters depending on applicant preferences; however, the stipend is $37,000 plus benefits regardless of the duration. Applicants are requested to indicate the period of their preference. Fellows may also obtain funding from their own academic institutions, outside foundations or personal resources. Round-trip travel expenses of up to $3,000 are also supported. Foreign applicants will need to obtain separate health insurance coverage.
