About the Brookings Doha Center
Established in 2008, the Brookings Doha Center (BDC) is an overseas center of the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. As a hub for Brookings scholarship in the region, the BDC advances high- quality, independent research and policy analysis on the Middle East and North Africa. In 2011 the Brookings Doha Center launched a joint Visiting Fellowship with Qatar University (QU).
Joint Visiting Fellowship
Over the course of a 4-6-month period, the fellow will teach up to two courses at Qatar University and have the opportunity to conduct original research of their own. The 4-6 month period covers one academic semester at Qatar University, and the fellowship may be extended by an additional semester. The joint fellow is expected to author a policy briefing on her/his area of focus, to be published by Brookings. Candidates with a focus on the Maghreb or the Gulf region are particularly encouraged to apply.
