2020-2022 CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions

CLIR is now accepting applications for 2020-2022 CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowships. The deadline for prospective fellows is January 10, 2020. Fellowship opportunities will be posted on this page and to CLIR+DLF Jobs. To be considered for the positions below, candidates must apply using CLIR’s online application system.

New hosts and position descriptions will be added to this list as they become available. Candidates’ applications will be forwarded to all host institutions looking to hire fellows with similar qualifications. Some host institutions may create fellowship positions after the application deadline has passed, but candidates will still be considered for those positions when their qualifications match hosts’ requirements.

CLIR staff will lead a Twitter FAQ session for interested applicants in fall 2019. Follow @CLIRNews on Twitter to stay up-to-date.
