AMERICA IN THE WORLD CONSORTIUM 2022-23 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

The America in the World Consortium at Duke University, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Texas at Austin seeks applications from recent Ph.D. recipients for its Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. 

The America in the World Consortium (AWC) is a dynamic partnership of universities seeking to create a more vibrant debate among policy-interested scholars about America’s role in the world. We are committed to preparing the next generation to confront geopolitical challenges and advance American national interests abroad. AWC prioritizes an intellectually diverse research community and supports fellows across a variety of disciplines. 

ABOUT AWC FELLOWS PROGRAM: 

In 2018, a team of scholar-practitioners from Duke University, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Texas at Austin launched a new consortium designed to better prepare the next generation to confront geopolitical challenges and advance American national interests abroad. AWC seeks Post-Doctoral Fellows for in-residence positions beginning in August 2022. Applicants will be considered for up to five (5) fellowship positions for up to two (2) years in residence at one of the three partner institutions:

 •Duke University, American Grand Strategy (AGS) Program.

 •Johns Hopkins University, Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at SAIS. 

 •University of Texas at Austin, Clements Center for National Security 

Applicants from all disciplines whose research bears directly on American grand strategy, broadly defined, are welcome to apply. However, preference will be given to applicants with a doctorate in political science, public policy, and history whose research has a strong connection to policy. Successful applicants will be able to spend the substantial portion of their time working on their own research and writing projects, while taking advantage of the many academic resources available at their institution. Additionally, Fellows will be required to play an active role in the host institution’s programs and activities. Additional responsibilities will be by mutual agreement between the Fellow and the AWC directors. For example, in some cases, Fellows will have the opportunity to teach an undergraduate course.
