Tailored opportunities:Postdoctoral Fellowship on Climate and Migration


The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility, as part of The New School, is pleased to announce a two year post-doctoral fellowship (July 1, 2018-June 30, 2020).

As part of the fellowship position, the Fellow will participate in the partnership between the German Historical Institute (GHI) and the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility. The Fellow will have the opportunity to connect their research on climate change and contemporary debate on forced migration with the work of a historically-minded scholar focused on forced migration in the 20th century.

In addition, the Fellow will be expected to participate in Institute events and to assist in the development of the Institute’s research initiative on climate change and migration, including the instruction of relevant courses (one in the 2018-19 academic year and two in the 2019-20 academic year). The Fellow will also participate in the planning of conferences, public events, and seminars on the theme of climate change and migration.

The Fellow will receive a competitive salary for two years, and opportunities to work with leading climate and migration experts and scholars as part of The New School and GHI community.
