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

During the academic year 2023-2024 up to two post-doctoral fellowships will be awarded for a ten (10) month period from September 1, 2023 to July 1, 2024.

DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellows are closely integrated into the SAIS academic community and will be affiliated with the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs. A division of Johns Hopkins University, SAIS is a global institution that provides interdisciplinary professional education to prepare a diverse student body for internationally related positions of responsibility; to foster research, scholarship and cross-cultural exchange; and to contribute knowledge, expertise, and leadership to the global community.

The Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs is home to a distinguished faculty of scholars and practitioners working to address some of today’s most complex global challenges. Through its innovative research, curricula, and programs, the Kissinger Center seeks to integrate historical scholarship with rigorous analysis of geostrategy and statecraft.

The Fellowships are funded through a grant from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with the generous support by the German Federal Foreign Office.

During the academic year 2023-2024 research and related activities will focus on “the roles of the United States and Germany at a crucial moment in world history.” DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellows will focus on this subject 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 the theme during the period of residence. The Fellows will work with the Helmut Schmidt Distinguished Visiting Professor and the Kissinger Center on two new initiatives: a German-US conference on issues of international security, historically informed statecraft and strategy and/or transatlantic relations taking place in Germany and a summer workshop on grand strategy and international security for early career academics and policymakers in Washington, D.C.

Eligibility

Applicants for the DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellowships at SAIS must have a doctorate or be at the post-doctorate level, have demonstrated research capacity, and be fluent in English. EU and U.S. citizens are welcome to apply. EU citizens should be 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.

Stipend

Each DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellow will receive a monthly stipend of up to $5,000, minus U.S. taxes; access to a computer and shared workspace; internet access; access to Johns Hopkins University libraries and other facilities. Each Fellow is expected to take care of his/her accommodation and living expenses. A basic health care package is available for all PostDoctoral Fellows. For non-US citizens one economy class roundtrip airfare will be provided. Furthermore, a research grant of $250 per month will be provided for each Fellow as well as one economy class roundtrip airfare to the above-mentioned conference in Germany. Health benefit premiums for accompanying dependents can also be covered ($560 per month if one dependent or $880 per month if more than one dependent).

Application Procedure

Each applicant should submit the following (in English):
1. A statement of interest outlining why you are applying and what you hope to get out of this fellowship.
2. A 3 to 5-page double-spaced research statement that proposes a research project, including its relevance to the theme “The United States, Europe and World Order.”
3. A curriculum vitae.
4. Three references with contact information.

The applicant is responsible for collecting all materials and submitting them before 23:59 EST on March 24, 2023 using the following JHU application portal: https://apply.interfolio.com/120982

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance in April 2023.

The 2023-2024 DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellowship begins on September 1, 2023 and concludes on July 1, 2024 with the possibility of renewal for another academic year. For further information, write to KissingerCenter@jhu.edu.
