DOCTORAL RESIDENCY FELLOWSHIP
Istanbul Studies Center at Kadir Has University invites applications for a nine-month Doctoral Residency Fellowship starting in the Fall Semester of 2017 – 2018 academic year. We are interested in proposals that involve comparative perspectives and methods of understanding the city in general, and Istanbul in particular.
Istanbul Studies Center (ISC) is an interdisciplinary forum for innovative research on socioeconomic, political, and cultural processes in world cities, with a focus on Istanbul. The main goal of the ISC is to encourage research on Istanbul, a world city in rapid change. The Center provides to the fellows affiliation, working space, access to library and other resources of the university while conducting their research in Istanbul, in the stimulating environment of Kadir Has University, located in the historical peninsula with a rich cultural and artistic constellation of institutions nearby.
During their residency the fellows are expected to participate in ISC’s Graduate Fellows Symposium, contribute to ISC’s public lecture, working paper series, news bulletin, and where appropriate assist courses. The language of instruction at Kadir Has University is English.
The applicant should send a cover letter, full academic CV, transcript, dissertation research proposal (not more than 8 pages single space), and the names of two references. The applicants should be ABDs (All but Dissertation) and/or carrying out their fieldwork/research.
The selected fellows, as affiliates of the ISC, will have the right to apply funding from TUBITAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey); please see
