University of Denver Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver is an interdisciplinary professional school of international studies that prepares students for careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors.

The program provides students with the knowledge, skills, and networks to design policies, implement programs, and realize outcomes that enhance human capabilities around the world.

Position Summary

The Sié Chéou-Kang Center for International Security and Diplomacy at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies and Oxfam America are seeking qualified candidates for an innovative post-doctoral scholar program.

The goal of this position is to contribute to the mission of both organizations through collaborative research on policy-relevant questions related to more equitable and sustainable economic models.

This position will serve as a bridge between Oxfam and the Sié Center and develop a collaborative project.

We will accept applications from candidates who specialize in more equitable and sustainable economic models. This work might, for example, be within the varieties of capitalism tradition, it could focus on circular cities and donut economies, or it might address indigenous economies and de-growth.

Applications with some focus on less industrialized settings will be viewed especially favorably as will those that focus on particular policy arenas (such as industrial policy or development alternatives), examine these issues with an eye toward feminist futures, and/or have researched transitioning from a focus on “extractivism” to a focus on care.

The Fellowship will begin September 1, 2022. The fellowship will extend for a one-year term, with the individual’s time spent at both Oxfam America (in Boston and/or Washington, DC) and the Sié Center at the University of Denver.

The Sié Center is a center of excellence within the Josef Korbel School that leads research, education and policy programs focused on the links between global security, prosperity, and social justice.

Nineteen faculty, visiting and post-doctoral scholars, and over 30 Korbel M.A. and PhD students contribute to the center’s activities.

While at the Sié Center, post-doctoral fellows have opportunities to work with center faculty and graduate students, engage with relevant policy practitioners, and receive administrative and research/travel support sufficient to allow the completion of a major research product.

Fellows will be expected to attend and contribute to a seminar series and engage with other program initiatives including conferences, commentary, and publications.

Oxfam America is part of an international confederation of 20 organizations networked together in more than 90 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty.

The fellowship carries an annual stipend of $55,000, an additional stipend to cover costs associated with travel between the two host institutions, access to additional funding for research support, professional development, and work-related travel, and a comprehensive benefits package.

For administrative purposes, the selected candidate will be an employee of the University of Denver.
