The Henry Chauncey ‘57 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, broadly defined, 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.
Fellows will work 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 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 Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy and to International Security Studies by participating in their activities and development. Offices are located on Yale’s campus. The salary is $55,000 plus $5,000 for research expenses.
ISS also hosts one predoctoral fellow in the Henry A. Kissinger Visiting Scholars Program. We seek a scholar whose work focuses on the role of the United States in global affairs from World War II to the present, including the conduct of U.S. statecraft, diplomacy, and grand strategy. Applicants should require access to the Henry A. Kissinger Papers or other archival holdings related to American diplomacy at Yale. The benefits and requirements of the fellowship itself mirror those of the Smith Richardson Predoctoral Fellows.
