The Chauncey Postdoctoral Fellowships are up to three positions funded by the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy for one year renewable for one additional year. We seek to attract outstanding junior scholars from around the globe whose work addresses questions of statecraft and grand strategy and demonstrates excellence in one of a range of academic disciplines and methodologies.
Postdoctoral fellows must have completed their PhD degree to begin the fellowship. They are expected to use their time at Yale to conduct original research and prepare manuscripts for publication. Working with an active academic community of postdoctoral and predoctoral fellows, as well as Yale faculty in history, political science, and other disciplines, postdoctoral fellows may examine a variety of areas of statecraft and grand strategy, including issues of security, economic development, environmental sustainability, global health, and human dignity.
A member of the Yale faculty will serve as a mentor during the fellowship and will meet on a regular basis with the fellow. Postdoctoral fellows may teach small seminars if desired. They participate regularly in research colloquia on campus and are granted opportunities to present their work. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to remain in residence through the duration of their fellowship and contribute to the intellectual life of the Grand Strategy Program and International Security Studies by participating in its activities and development.
Fellows will be expected to conduct their own research and to teach at least one course on a subject relevant to grand strategy during each year in which they hold the fellowship. The stipend will be at least $50,000.The announcement lists Law and Legal History as one of the search's "primary categories."
