Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoctoral Fellows at Perry World House bring new ideas, energy and insights to our research. Recent Ph.D. recipients from leading universities in the U.S. and abroad spend a year at Perry World House, researching, writing, and connecting with the Penn community. Selected on the basis of overall excellence and doctoral research pertinent to the Global Innovation Program, the Borders and Boundaries Project, or the Penn Identity and Conflict Lab, these individuals continue their own academic inquiries as well as support the collective efforts of the Perry World House community. Upon completion of their fellowships, they become part of Penn’s growing network around the globe.

We offer a range of postdoctoral fellowship programs related to our research areas. Applications for our 2021-22 postdoctoral fellowships closed on January 10, 2021.
