The Mershon Center for International Security Studies (https://mershoncenter.osu.edu) at The Ohio State University invites applications to fill two postdoctoral fellowship positions for the 2019-2020 academic year. Applications are welcomed from scholars who have completed their Ph.D. or who expect to complete their degree by June 30, 2019. The term of appointment is July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020. Successful applicants may apply for a one-year renewal of the fellowship.
The Mershon postdoctoral fellowships support research on national security in a global context. We understand international security from a wide range of perspectives, approaches, and substantive foci. Consequently, successful applicants may come from a variety of disciplines that engage international security broadly conceived. Fellows at the Mershon Center will pursue their own research and participate in the activities of the Center. We especially welcome applications from scholars whose work explicitly integrates knowledge across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
The Mershon Center provides an institutional home for campus-wide collaboration among departments, programs, institutes, faculty and students at The Ohio State University engaged in work pertaining to international security broadly construed. Activities include conferences, roundtables, and speaker series.
Applications are welcomed from scholars who have completed their Ph.D. or who expect to complete their degree by June 30, 2019. Because fellows are expected to be fully integrated with the intellectual life of the Center, they must plan to physically reside in the vicinity of The Ohio State University.
