The Harriman Institute postdoctoral fellowships allow junior scholars to spend a specified term (usually an academic year, or in special cases a semester) in residence at Columbia University in New York. All fellows are assigned a faculty mentor. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to concentrate on their own research and writing; to give a brownbag seminar on their research, and post a related Working Paper on the Institute’s website; and to be active participants in the Institute’s scholarly community and events.

The Institute provides funds to sponsor workshops, conferences, and special events planned by fellows around their particular interests.
