The Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies (WCED) at the University of Michigan invites postdoctoral scholars to apply for the Emerging Democracies Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship supports research on the broad historical, political, economic, and societal conditions under which democracies emerge—and autocracies endure.
Up to three awards are available for the 2018-20 fellowship. Emerging Democracies Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to focus on their own research, participate in WCED workshops and events, and present one public lecture during their fellowship year, while in residence at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
We welcome excellent applicants from all disciplines. Fellows must have successfully defended and filed their dissertation before beginning the fellowship. Eligibility is restricted to those who have received their PhD after January 1, 2016.
Fellowships carry an annual salary of $50,000 plus $2,000 in research funds per year, and will be eligible for U-M health, dental, and life insurance options (beginning September 1, 2018 through May 31, 2020). Fellows have full access to U-M library resources.
