About the Foreign Policy Program

 

The Foreign Policy program at Brookings is a leading center of policy-relevant scholarship. Brookings’s Second Century Strategic Plan focuses on improving governance at all levels— local, national, global. Under the direction of Vice President and Director Bruce Jones, Foreign Policy pursues this through research, education, and policy recommendations addressing three areas of effort: sustaining and adapting core precepts of the liberal international order; developing effective networks and institutions to manage international peace and security; and generating effective responses to subnational and transnational challenges (including those related to the intersection of technology and national security) that can otherwise amplify conflict and insecurity.

 

 

Overview:

 

The Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution invites applications for the award of up to two full-time resident fellowships for policy-oriented post-doctoral research for the 2018-2019 academic year.

 

The fellowship carries a stipend of $58,500 USD, payable in installments over a period of residency at Brookings of no less than nine months and no more than 12 months. This income is taxable; Brookings will withhold taxes and report on stipend payments according to U.S. tax guidelines. The Institution will also provide up to $5,000 USD in expense reimbursements for research-related travel, and other essential research requirements. Brookings will provide a workspace, networked desktop computer, an individual network account, and access to Brookings research resources. Post-Doctoral Research Fellows, and their immediate families, are eligible to participate in the Institution's medical, dental, and vision insurance. Post-Doctoral Research Fellows are responsible for any costs associated with the insurance(s) provided.
