The Yale Program in Iranian Studies (at the Yale MacMillan Center’s
Council on Middle East Studies) accepts applications for the

and participate in the activities of the Iranian Studies Program and
Council on Middle East Studies. Post-doctoral Associates are expected to

of humanities and social and political sciences who have recently
received their PhDs or are in the early stages of their academic career
may apply. Requirements include a viable research project and teaching
an undergraduate seminar in the field of specialization.
