Deadline: 1 February 2016
The Transatlantic Post-Doc Fellowship for International Relations and Security (TAPIR) at Research and Development Corporation (RAND) is open to candidates who have recently received their doctorate in social and political sciences or economics and whose research focuses on topics of international relations and/or international peace and security issues.
Fellowships are granted for duration of 24 months to prepare fellows for a career in policy-oriented and international research at renowned think tanks and political consulting research institutes. Fellows spend three eight-month stays at research institutions or think tanks participating in the program—at least one on the Eastern and one on the Western side of the Atlantic.
Fellows will be supervised by a researcher at each host institute, while being integrated into the relevant research units or projects. Fellows will have the opportunity to work on issues of major and immediate political significance, and to publish their work in journals or paper series that will be read by decision-makers at national and international levels.
