The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility, as part of The New School, is pleased to announce a post-doctoral fellowship for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic years. This is an ideal opportunity for recent Ph.D. graduates to join a leading teaching, research, and policy institute on migration and mobility studies in New York City.
The Fellow will be expected to participate in the Institute's activities, and will teach two courses during each academic year (four courses total).
