Post-Doctoral Fellowship, Kissinger Center

The Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, DC is accepting applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship for Academic Year 2021/2022.

About the Opening

In 2018, Johns Hopkins SAIS partnered with a team of scholar-practitioners from Duke University and University of Texas-Austin to launch the America in the World consortium. That consortium aims to prepare the next generation to confront geopolitical challenges and understand American national interests abroad. The fellow will be expected, in addition to pursuing his or her own research and writing, to contribute to the intellectual life of the consortium and participate in its programming.

The successful candidate is expected to be in residence and will be offered a competitive stipend and use of office space in the Kissinger Center in Washington, DC. They will also have access to Johns Hopkins University’s libraries and facilities. The fellow will begin their one-year position in July 2021.


We are especially interested in receiving applications from those who are interested in research and writing about American grand strategy and foreign policy, broadly defined. We encourage candidates with PhDs in history and political science to apply, though applications from other disciplines are welcome. Applications from women and minority candidates are especially encouraged.
Application Instructions

All applications should include:

– A letter of application;

– A curriculum vitae (with references);

– Article or writing sample on American grand strategy, broadly defined.

Applications are due by Sunday, February 14, 2021. Decisions will be announced in March 2021. This position is contingent on the availability of funding. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions.
