The School of International Relations at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) seeks up to eight short-term research fellows to help it further develop its presence in the field of nuclear security. The project seeks to support excellent research, increase cooperation between scholars, and foster dialogue between the academy and the policy world, both in Brazil and throughout South America.
Fellows will be invited to spend up to three months during 2017 at our offices in São Paulo. Each fellowship includes a monthly stipend of R$ 10,000, one return economy airfare, and additional funds for domestic research expenses as required.
Suitable candidates will be advanced graduate students, early-career scholars, or policymakers, and will show potential to become intellectual leaders in the field of nuclear security. FGV welcomes applications from all disciplines, including International Relations, Political Science and History. The fellowship is intended for individuals of any nationality based outside Brazil.
We expect each fellow to collaborate on a range of activities that may include one or more of the following:
- Conducting original research in the field of nuclear politics and security, broadly defined;
- Generating policy-relevant knowledge;
- Developing intellectual ties with Brazil-based academics, for example by participating in grant applications and establishing long-term projects;
Applications will include a CV and cover letter outlining the proposed research in detail. Candidates should explain how their proposed activities in Brazil fit into their own research agenda. We are especially interested in candidates who have developed or are willing to develop long-term research collaboration with academic partners in Brazil.
Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of the candidate’s proposal, research agenda, scholarly record, and their ability to contribute to the intellectual life of our community.
Candidates should submit their application to firstname.lastname@example.org
before January 15, 2017. For informal queries pertaining to this fellowship you may contact Dr. James Cameron (email@example.com
