The IIHS Post-Doctoral Programme: A Call for Fellows

You are here: Home > The IIHS Post-Doctoral Programme: A Call for Fellows

IIHS is seeking Post-Doctoral Fellows to join its vibrant intellectual environment within the Academics and Research programme at IIHS.

While Fellows are hired institutionally at IIHS, each is hired into a specific and on-going research-based project. These projects are the Fellow’s first home within the institution. They are thus expected to account for up to half of the Fellow’s time, though this can vary for different projects. The remaining time is equally split between the Fellow’s own research and writing as well as their participation in IIHS institutional roles. These roles include: teaching in on-going academic or capacity building programmes, participating in the internal conference and seminar series, and supporting institutional processes.

IIHS has created an internationally-recognised programme that allows Post-Doctoral Fellows to grow and be mentored for their future careers. All Fellows are thus paired with specific mentors within IIHS (within or outside their core research project). A Fellow’s mentorship and progress is tracked through quarterly performance reviews that help Fellows attain their individual and institutional goals during their time at IIHS.

A select set of Fellows have been drawn into the IIHS faculty over the last few years. Others have gone on to take up positions in leading international universities.

Post-doctoral fellowships typically have one or two-year terms, and some may be extendable. This current call is for ten positions.

1. Post-Doctoral Fellow in Social Security and Economic Development
2. Post-Doctoral Fellow in Urban Health
3. Post-Doctoral Fellow in Gender and Health
4-5. Post-Doctoral Fellows in Land Management and Governance

9-10. Post-Doctoral Fellows in Disaster Risk Policy and Governance
