Jamal Daniel Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) at Georgetown University is pleased to announce two Jamal Daniel Post-Doctoral Fellowships for the Study of the Levant, established by a generous grant from the Levant Foundation. These fellowships will support two recent PhDs whose academic interests focus on the Levantine region – defined as Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Turkey - for a period of one academic year for the purpose of transforming their dissertation into a book manuscript for publication. The fellows will receive a stipend of between $40,000 - $45,000, plus benefits.
Applicants must have completed a PhD between January 1, 2011 and August 31, 2013. The fellowships require residence at Georgetown University for the duration of the academic year. The fellows will be given library privileges at Georgetown University and shared office space at the CCAS. During the fall term the fellows will be expected to deliver a lecture at CCAS about their research. In the spring term, the fellows will teach a small seminar of their choosing related to the Levantine region.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, academic transcripts, course proposal, three letters of recommendation and a sample chapter and outline of their dissertation. The application must be postmarked no later than December 15, 2012.
