The Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance (NCGG) at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs invite applications for a postdoctoral or more senior research associate position from individuals with a Ph.D. degree or who expect to receive a Ph.D. degree by September 1, 2020 for the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in regional political economy for the 2020-2021 academic year. This fellows program is targeted at developing a generation of scholars able to analyze and make policy recommendations about the regional political economy in the Middle East, East, South, or Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America. The Center invites candidates with a background in economics, political science, contemporary history, sociology, law, business, and other disciplines bearing on the study of markets, politics, and economic development, focusing on the regions of the Middle East, East, South, or Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America to apply. Scholarly work should explore the ways in which the politics within and between a set of countries intersect with natural resource endowments, market conditions, technological and physical infrastructure, and cultural biases to explain existing patterns of economic development and to promote higher levels of development more effectively. Selected candidates will be required to be in residence for the duration of the fellowship (September 1, 2020 - July 1, 2021).
