The Buffett Institute invites applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowships in the study of global, comparative, or international affairs. Up to three fellows will be selected
Each fellow will be affiliated with the Buffett Institute and an appropriate department in the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences (political science, history, sociology, anthropology, etc.) or the School of Communication (performance studies, radio/television/film, communication studies, and theater).
Fellows will pursue a program of independent scholarship and teach one quarter-long undergraduate class during the academic year. Over the two years of the fellowship, fellows can expect to teach one seminar class and one lecture class. Fellows will also help organize and run Buffett Institute visiting speaker series and other events.
They are expected to be active participants in intellectual activities of both the Buffett Institute and their affiliated disciplinary departments, and to deliver one public lecture each year.
Fellowships will run from September 1, 2017, to August 31, 2019.
