Please submit the following to apply:
1. Your most recent curriculum vitae and two references.
2. A cover letter describing your background and qualifications for placement as an at-risk scholar with CHRGJ.
3. A 3-5 page proposal outlining the research project you intend to undertake while at CHRGJ. The statement should explain how the project will add to the body of human rights knowledge and scholarship at the Center.
Outline your qualifications to complete this research; and describe the methods and time frame you will use to carry out the project.
Please make sure to emphasize any relevance your project may have to the Center’s current projects and programs. Although the Center welcomes proposals on any human rights-related topic, strong preference will be given to those candidates whose work feeds directly into the theme and related project areas the Center is known for.
Please also highlight any additional resources you are prepared to provide as a Scholar in Residence (e.g., willingness to mentor interns, guest lecture, take part in Center conferences, workshops, and events, etc.,)
4. Send your complete application package electronically to CHRGJ’s Director of Operations and Academic Programs, Lauren Stackpoole (email@example.com).
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Applications that do not follow the guidelines outlined above will not be considered. Applicants who meet the above criteria will be directed to Scholars at Risk for the next stage of the application process, where information about risk and other considerations will be gathered.
Please do not contact the Scholars at Risk Program directly with your application, as the program requires an institutional nomination from the Center directly.
