The following fellowship opportunity, funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, is available for scholars holding the Ph.D. degree or its equivalent anywhere in the world.

PROGRAM
The goal of the GSC fellowship program is to provide support to promising scholars from around the world in order to generate new knowledge and theoretical insights to better understand the causes of, and safeguard against threats to human security. In particular, we seek to help bridge the gap between academic expertise and the knowledge held by practitioners in the many non-governmental, governmental and multilateral institutions that are involved with peace and security issues. We believe that new and more appropriate forms of collaboration between these two communities are vital for both understanding and ameliorating the varieties of threats to human security around the world. We are particularly interested in providing research scholars with the opportunity to gain new insights from the experience of immersing themselves in a practice-oriented or policy-oriented environment. Significant intellectual products that address the conditions for enhancing global security, and create new frameworks for building cooperation and peace are expected as a result. Products may include books or series of articles; documentaries; and/or educational Web sites.

LENGTH AND LOCATION OF TENURE
The postdoctoral fellowships, which last from 12 to 18 months, must be completed in two stages: the first part (six months minimum) working in a practitioner institution, the second part conducting research related to this experience.
We invite applications for fellowships from scholars whose research would directly benefit from a period of work experience in a non-governmental, international, or multilateral organization directly involved in peace, international cooperation, or security issues. The host institution may be anywhere in the world, but must be different from the applicants' current institutional affiliation; applicants are encouraged to spend their fellowship outside their country of residence, but are not required to do so.
By non-governmental organizations, we mean both grassroots organizations (like community-based organizations seeking to protect the local environment) and transnational organizations (like Amnesty International or Doctors Without Borders). By international or multilateral organizations, we mean official organizations like the International Court of Justice, Interpol, and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
The second half of the fellowship must be spent doing research on a topic directly related to or informed by this experience. Field research is encouraged, and may be done anywhere that is appropriate to the research design. Proposed affiliation(s) should be clearly specified in the proposal.

THEMES/TOPICS
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the human security implications of human rights; inequality; religious, national, and ethnic revivalism; military affairs; weapons proliferation and arms control; peace-keeping and peace-building; the spread of disease; ecosystem degradation; international migration; international crime; trafficking in humans; food supplies; and global finance and trade. Priority will be given to proposals related to these themes and offering innovative perspectives on issues of security in this broad context.

STIPEND
Fellowships begin in September 2003. There is a maximum award of $38,000 per year. In addition, each fellow will be provided allowances for research and institutional expenses.

ELIGIBILITY
Applicants must:
• Hold a Ph.D. degree, or have an equivalent amount of research and teaching experience. (Applicants currently completing Ph.D. degrees must do so by January 1, 2003.)
• Speak, read and write English at a level that allows for intellectual exchange between fellows.

There are no citizenship, nationality, or residence requirements.
