Junior Fellows, South Asia Program, Henry L. Stimson Center, Washington, D.C., USA. Deadline: 16 February 2023.
The Henry L. Stimson Center’s South Asia Program welcomes applications from highly motivated graduating seniors or individuals who have completed their undergraduate or master’s degree in the past year for its 2023-2024 cohort of Junior Fellows. The one-year, full-time fellowship will provide individuals with a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of security issues in the subcontinent, engage with the South Asia policy community in Washington and the region, and experience working at a dynamic think tank that provides close interaction with senior staff and researchers. The fellow will be expected to reside in the DC/MD/VA area for the tenure of their appointment.
Junior Fellows will support the Stimson South Asia Program’s efforts to research, analyze, and inform policymakers about the evolving dynamics of deterrence, conflict risks, military modernization, and great-power competition in Southern Asia. Fellows will support research, publications, and programmatic efforts (including South Asian Voices, Strategic Learning, and public events and workshops). They will receive professional development opportunities to engage with leading scholars and practitioners in the field; to represent Stimson at scholarly and policy convenings; to hone technical and analytical skills; and to conduct, present, and publish their own research.
