Benaroya Postdoctoral Fellowship in Israel Studies
The Jack and Rebecca Benaroya Endowment for Excellence in Israel Studies, housed at the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies at the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington, will support a two-year in-residence postdoctoral fellowship beginning in fall 2020.
The fellow may come from any discipline but must specialize in the histories, cultures, societies, literatures, languages, or politics of modern Israel or Israel/Palestine, including in their local, regional, or transnational contexts. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. (or foreign equivalent) within the past three years, and no later than June 2020.
The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong academic record, focused research agenda, and enthusiasm about the resources available at the University of Washington. They are expected to offer one quarter-long, twice-weekly undergraduate lecture course each academic year, of a size and scope determined in conjunction with the Stroum Center. The Benaroya Fellow is also expected to offer one public lecture.
