The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies invites applications for a post-doctoral fellowship on a year by year basis. We are not offering the fellowship in 2013-2014.
Candidates teach one course per semester in Israel Studies, related to programs in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, Israeli arts and culture, politics, sociology, economics, or other relevant disciplines.
The fellow is expected to be in residence at Brandeis, to participate actively in the intellectual life of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, and to present at least one public lecture. There may also be an opportunity for participation in the Summer Institute for Israel Studies.
The annual stipend is $50,000 and is benefits-eligible. The fellowship may be renewable for a second year.
