SAIS-DAAD Post Doctoral Fellowship

The Paul H. Nitze School for Advanced International Studies (SAIS) invites outstanding scholars to conduct research in Washington, D.C. on “The United States, Europe, and World Order.”

The Fellowships are funded through a generous grant from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
During the academic year, post-doctoral fellows are closely integrated into the SAIS academic community and will be affiliated with the SAIS Foreign Policy Institute.
Fellows will focus on their subjects during a regular series of high-level seminars, peer review sessions, and opportunities for direct engagement with senior foreign policy practitioners and leading scholars of statecraft and world order.
Each Fellow is expected to complete a research paper related to this theme during the period of residence.
The post-doctoral program are part of a multi-year program to enhance research on transatlantic relations at Johns Hopkins SAIS funded by the DAAD with generous support by the German Federal Foreign Office.
Applicants for the DAAD Fellowships at SAIS must have a doctorate or be at the post-doctorate level, have demonstrated research capacity, and be fluent in English. U.S. citizens are welcome to
apply. Non-US citizens should ideally be EU citizens currently affiliated with a German university or research institution, and be eligible for a J-1 visa. Preference will be given to those who are no
more than 6 years beyond completing their dissertation, although others are also eligible.
