Research Fellowships

There are two CSAP fellowship tracks available as funding and space permit.

Junior Scholar Postdoctoral Associate:

The Center for the Study of American Politics at the Yale Institution for Social and Policy Studies (ISPS) is offering research fellowships for postdoctoral scholars working on projects in American Politics. Fellowship positions are open to those who have recently completed their Ph.D. (in the last 6 years), or to those who currently hold a faculty position as long as it is without tenure. Junior scholars are generally supported at a standard postdoctoral level for a period of one year and are expected to be in residence during the academic year. They will also be expected to participate in the activities of the Center which include a weekly seminar. Salary is negotiable depending on qualifications and may, in some cases, include minimal teaching responsibilities.

Yale is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty.  Applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans, and persons with disabilities are particularly encouraged.

Please send cover letter, research statement, current C.V., one writing sample, and two letters of recommendation. A copy of graduate transcripts is also required for postdoctoral applicants not currently holding a faculty position. 

PLEASE NOTE: We are not currently taking applications for this position.

Senior Faculty Scholar in Residence:

The Senior Faculty Scholar in Residence program is open to all tenured faculty.  Working with a local faculty sponsor, the fellowship allows a senior faculty to spend approximately one month in residence at the Yale Center for the Study of American Politics at ISPS and provides a commensurate stipend to support travel/living expenses and research.
