Acad. Job: Postdoc in Contemporary Russian Studies (UW-Madison)

Deadline: March 31, 2021

CREECA at UW-Madison invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships for social scientists on Russia. While we encourage applications from young scholars in Russia, there are no citizenship requirements for this fellowship.

The Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA) invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship on contemporary Russia in one or more of the five topic areas: 1) Education, labor markets, and inequality; 2) Law and society; 3) Political economy; 4) Identity, place, and migration; and 5) Demographic change. The fellowship is funded with a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. 

The fellowship will commence September 2021 and run through August 2022. Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent degree, such as the kandidat) in hand prior to September 2021, and they must have received the degree no earlier than January 1, 2016. The deadline for submission of documents is March 31, 2021.
