The Qatar Post-Doctoral Fellowship was established by a generous grant from the State of Qatar to the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) at Georgetown University in Washington DC. The fellowship supports a recent Ph.D. working on the topic of U.S.-Arab relations, Arab Studies, or Islamic Studies for one academic year ($60,000 plus benefits). The post-doctoral fellow will transform their Ph.D. dissertation into a publication; teach a small seminar on a topic of their choosing in either the fall or spring semester; and, deliver a lecture at CCAS about their research. We also will support the Fellow to travel to Qatar and deliver a lecture at an educational institution in Doha.
Eligibility: Applicants for the 2018-2019 academic year must have completed a Ph.D. between January 1, 2016 and August 31, 2018; the Ph.D. degree must be from a university in the United States; applicants will be assessed on the originality of their scholarship and the high quality of their academic record.
