The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) is pleased to announce two new Levant Post-Doctoral Fellowship opportunities. These fellowships will support two recent PhDs whose academic interests focus on the Levantine region
– defined as Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Turkey – for a period of one academic year for the purpose of finalizing their dissertation into a book manuscript. The fellows will receive a stipend of between $40,000 -$45,000 -plus benefits.
Applicants must have completed a PhD between January 1, 2010 and August 31, 2012. These fellowships require residence at Georgetown University for the duration of the academic year. The fellows will be given library privileges at Georgetown University and shared or part-time office space at CCAS. During the fall term the fellows will be expected to deliver a lecture at CCAS about their research. In the spring term, the fellows will teach a small seminar of their choosing related to the Levant.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, academic transcripts, course proposal, three letters of recommendation and a sample chapter and outline of their dissertation to:
