Columbia University’s Committee on Global Thought is fielding applications for up to four post-doctoral fellowship positions:

The post-doctoral fellowship of the Committee on Global Thought at Columbia University brings together an innovative group of interdisciplinary researchers from around the world. The Fellowship gives emerging scholars the opportunity to work with distinguished faculty and provides a space for collaborative research and publication. Global Thought encourages interdisciplinary, transnational research under four broad topics: Secularism and Diversity, Global Governance, Poverty and Inequality, and Migration.

Past fellows have researched topics including the local socio-economic consequences of global policy, the historical roots of identity, and the evolution of transnational and international political structures. Scholars from any discipline may apply, provided that they successfully indicate how their work will contribute to Global Thought’s research themes. Up to four fellowship spots are available for the academic year beginning August 1, 2010.

The term of the fellowship is two calendar years, beginning August 1, 2010 and ending July 31, 2012.

The general deadline for applications is November 15, 2009. To learn more, visit the Committee on Global Thought’s website.
