The Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship

We have paused this fellowship while we conduct a review of our funding. We are not accepting applications at this time.

About this fellowship

Every other year, the Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Program at the Buffett Institute for Global Studies invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the study of Turkey in a global or a comparative perspective. Applications are welcome from scholars whose research addresses transnational social processes, problems, or conflicts in connection to contemporary Turkey.

The Keyman fellow is affiliated with both the Keyman Program and an appropriate department in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences or the School of Communication, such as Anthropology; Art, Theory & Practice; Communication Studies; History; Middle East & North African Studies; Performance Studies; Political Science; or Sociology.

Fellowship details

The Fellow will pursue a program of independent scholarship and teach one undergraduate class each year during their fellowship. The Fellow is expected to help program and manage the activities of the Turkey Working Group, to be an active participant in the academic activities in the Keyman Program and the Buffett Institute, as well as their affiliated disciplinary departments, and to deliver one public lecture each year.
