Postdoctoral Scholars Program
All postdoctoral scholars receive university IDs that provide access to the full range of resources within the Columbia library system, and the Institute makes every effort to provide desk space for all postdoctoral scholars. The Institute provides funds to sponsor workshops, conferences, and special events planned by scholars around their particular interests.
For the 2022-2023 cycle, the Harriman Institute has conducted a search for four (4) Postdoctoral Research Scholar Positions: two (2) Mellon Teaching Fellows (any discipline), a Ukrainian Studies Postdoctoral Research Scholar (any discipline), and a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Russian Politics. Applications are under review.
Fellowships are open to young scholars who have received (or will have received) a Ph.D. from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022 and do not hold a tenure-track position.
The following materials are required from all applicants:
- Curriculum Vitae (must include each college and university and dates you have attended)
- Research proposal: 2-3 page statement describing the research project you would pursue at Columbia University if awarded a fellowship, indicating its relation (if any) to your doctoral dissertation, as well as its relation to the mission of the Harriman Institute
- A writing sample, such as an article or dissertation chapter
- 2 letters of reference that include an evaluation of your research and teaching proposals
