The Tunisia Office of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University is inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship. The call for applications is open to scholars in the Humanities or Social Sciences who have received their PhD within the past seven years.
The CMES Tunisia Office is the first overseas branch of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University. Established in Tunis in January 2017, the office offers an in-situ base for Harvard students and scholars conducting research on the Maghreb and the Middle East. The office’s mission is to host Harvard students in a site geographically located in the area they are studying, to build and strengthen connections and collaboration opportunities with Tunisian, North African, and Middle Eastern academia, and to facilitate research work for Harvard researchers within the Tunisian research institutions, libraries, and archives.
Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
