Post-Doctoral Fellow in Israel Studies

The Emory Institute for the Study of Modern Israel invites applications for a two-semester appointment, for a post-doctoral position in Israel Studies. The holder of the position will teach on a topic of 19th-20th Zionism and/or Israel but not the Arab-Israeli conflict. Three courses will be required over the two semester appointment, with one of the three courses offered at an historic black college in the Atlanta metropolitan area. The disciplinary focus is open, though a concentration on contemporary history, politics, society, economics, and culture is preferred. Appointed fellows will provide mentoring for undergraduate students, participate actively in ISMI public programs during the grant period, and provide two public lectures each semester. Holders of the post-doctoral position will have access to a limited amount of funds for research and travel associated with the position.

  • Applicants for the post-doc must have a PhD degree awarded by the time the appointment commences in August 2020.
  • Preference will be given to applicants who have a demonstrated fluency in Hebrew.
  • Preference will be given to applicants who have experience either in teaching or in the public policy realm with Israel as a major focus.
