Position description

The Sié Chéou-Kang Center for International Security and Diplomacy at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies has two openings in its post-doctoral fellows’ program. We will accept applications from candidates who specialize in global peace and security (broadly construed) but are particularly interested in those doing policy relevant research on the effects of inclusion on violence, peace building, and governance. Fellows will engage in their own research, participate in center activities, and have opportunities to contribute to collaborative research designed to inform (and be informed by) contemporary policy concerns and strategies. The Fellowship will begin September 1, 2018. Post-doctoral fellows will spend one academic year at the Sié Center. 

The Sié Chéou-Kang Center for International Security and Diplomacy is a center of excellence within the Josef Korbel School that leads research, education and policy programs focused on global peace and security. Eight faculty, visiting and post-doctoral scholars, and over 40 Korbel MA and PhD students contribute to the Center’s activities. While at the Sié Center, post-doctoral fellows have opportunities to work with Center faculty and graduate students, engage with relevant policy practitioners, and receive clerical and research/travel support sufficient to allow the completion of a major research product. Fellows will be expected to attend and contribute to a seminar series and engage with other program initiatives including conferences, commentary, and publications.

The fellowship carries an annual stipend of $50,000 and access to additional funding for research support, professional development, and travel, and a comprehensive benefits package.
