      CFA: George Washington University Visiting Fellowship on Russia’s Global Engagement
      https://www.gwu.jobs/postings/14284

      George Washington University Visiting Fellowship on Russia’s Global
      Engagement. The Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies at
      George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs
      (http://www.gwu.edu/~ieresgwu/) announces a competition for one
      Post-Doctoral Scientist position for the academic year 2013-14.

      The Post-Doctoral Scientist will spend approximately 50 percent of time on
      his/her own research and the other 50 percent serving as Russian-language
      editor for the website of the Program on New Approaches to Research and
      Security in Eurasia (PONARS Eurasia, http://www.ponarseurasia.org). The
      Russian-language website will include translations of PONARS Eurasia
      material, so as to make this material more widely accessible to the
      Russian-speaking community, and a Russian-language blog. Responsibilities
      will include supervising and ensuring the quality of translations of
      PONARS Eurasia material on the website (separate translators will do the
      actual translation) and soliciting original entries (at least 1 post a
      week) for the blog from PONARS Eurasia members and other qualified experts
      on important global issues concerning Russia and Eurasia, as well as
      reaching out to other Russian-language media outlets. The Post-Doctoral
      Scientist is expected to be in residence at IERES for the entire period of
      the fellowship and contribute actively to IERES’s lively intellectual
      community through participation in the institute’s seminars, talks, and
      other events.

      Candidates must have native-level fluency in Russian speaking and writing;
      enjoy fluency in English and have a record of English-language
      publications; possess a Ph.D. or Kandidat Nauk (Russian candidate of
      sciences) degree; and have a scholarly professional background. Candidates
      should have a superb grasp of global issues and debates concerning Russia
      and Eurasia. Non- U.S. citizens are welcome to apply. The Post-Doctoral
      Scientist will receive a pre-tax stipend of $4,000/month (plus benefits)
      for 10 months (beginning in August or September 2013). IERES will also
      cover the cost of one round-trip air ticket and J-1 visa fee.

      Candidates should apply at https://www.gwu.jobs/postings/14284. The cover
      letter should include a description of the research the applicant plans to
      conduct and their vision for further developing the Russian-language
      PONARS Eurasia website (including ideas for the blog). Questions may be
      directed to IERES Associate Director Cory Welt at cwelt@....

      The deadline for receipt of all application materials is April 15, 2013.
      This position is funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur
      Foundation.
