HARRIMAN INSTITUTE POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

HARRIMAN INSTITUTE POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS


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. All postdoctoral fellows receive university IDs that provide access to the full range of resources within the Columbia library system, and the Institute makes every effort to provide desk space for all postdoctoral fellows. The Institute provides funds to sponsor workshops, conferences, and special events planned by fellows around their particular interests.

The Harriman Institute has three types of postdoctoral fellowships: general (four positions), the INTERACT Central Asia postdoc (one position), and the Ukrainian Studies postdoc (one semester-long position). Candidates should indicate which programs they are applying for in their cover letters.

Eligibility for the 2015 competition is restricted to those who have received the Ph.D. between July 31, 2012 and June 30, 2015 and do not hold a tenure-track position. All fellows must have successfully defended and deposited their dissertations prior to the commencement of the fellowship.

Information on each program and application details are posted below. All applications are due by January 15.






Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.

The cultural products of the last century reflect change, opportunity, and uncertainty, and demonstrate active negotiations between personal identity and social awareness, nationalism and cosmopolitanism, artistic voice and security.

In 1964 the Bulgarian-Belarusian-Russian scholar Georgii Gachev coined the term ‘uskorennoe razvitie’ or ‘accelerated development’ in his 1964 monograph Accelerated Development of Literature: On the Basis of the Bulgarian Literature of the First Half of the 19thCenturyThe term describes what happened to Bulgarian literature during Ottoman rule. Being a ‘young’ and ‘peripheral’ literature, having started to develop only recently at the time, Bulgarian literature ‘had to’ go through the whole evolution of European literature at a high pace in order to catch up with the latter. One of the side effects of this accelerated development was that characteristics of different style periods could even co-occur. Gachev’s thought-provoking idea has never really received a l…
