Postdoctoral Scholars

At this time, the Harriman Institute does not expect to run a search for Postdoctoral Research Scholar positions for 2021-2022 cycle.

The Harriman Institute postdoctoral fellowships allow junior scholars to spend a 2-year term in residence at Columbia University in New York. All scholars are assigned a faculty mentor. Postdoctoral scholars are expected to concentrate on their own research and writing; to give a brownbag seminar on their research; teach one course; and to be active participants in the Institute’s scholarly community and events. 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.
The Harriman Institute has two types of postdoctoral fellowships: general (three positions, two-year appointments) and Ukrainian Studies (one position, two-year appointment).

Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
