Visiting scholars and Post-Docs

The Department of Political Science welcomes visiting scholars every year. We are especially interested in hosting scholars who have an academic interest in global governance, political economy, and/or public policy and public administration, or who are collaborators of our faculty members.

While these positions are limited, the Department is usually able to offer our visiting scholars office space and, on occasion, an opportunity to teach where appropriate. Each visiting scholar is also expected to give a talk to the department (faculty, staff, and students) about their research.  

Prospective visiting scholars and those interested in having the Department of Political Science host their postdoctoral fellowship should secure a letter of support from a current member of the department faculty and send a statement of interest and a recent CV to the Political Science Chair at
