Columbia Global Centers│Europe invites applications for its 2012–2014 postdoctoral fellowships, made available by a generous grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. These fellowships are open to Greek nationals with recent doctoral degrees from European universities, and will allow fellows to spend two years in residence at the CGC│Europe at Reid Hall in Paris. Niarchos Fellows will carry out their own research, liaise with other scholars with the support of CGC│Europe, and gain teaching experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Fellows will be encouraged to establish contacts with other research institutes across Europe, as well as with Paris-based institutions, and to draw on the resources of CGC│Europe to run workshops and seminars connected to their work. Fellows will have access to all of Columbia’s resources, local university and research connections, as well as to the wider network of Global Centers. They will be enabled to stay in New York for the fall semester of their second year at the main Morningside campus of Columbia University, where they will be supervised by faculty mentors as they pursue their own research.
