The Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for Wisconsin Russia Project postdoctoral research fellowships (for US and/or Russian social scientists) and pre-doctoral dissertation fellowships (for Russian social scientists), funded with a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Fellows are expected to be in residence in Madison, Wisconsin, and to conduct research about Russia in one or more of the five topic areas:
1) Education, labor markets, and inequality;
2) Law and society;
3) Political economy;
4) Identity, place, and migration; and
5) Demographic change.
Fellows will conduct research in consultation with UW-Madison faculty and will join a vibrant community of scholars working on the social science of Russia.
The application deadline for both competitions is March 1, 2019.
