Predoctoral Positions:

SNF Agora Academy Predoctoral Fellow

The SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a one-year predoctoral fellowship to join the SNF Agora Academy during the 2023–2024 academic year. The Academy is hosted by the SNF Agora Institute, an academic and public forum at Johns Hopkins University dedicated to strengthening global democracy through civic engagement and informed, inclusive dialogue. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in any field awarded no earlier than 2021 and must not have started a PhD program. We encourage applications who intend to pursue a PhD in political science or sociology. Applications are due 11:59 p.m. ET on April 15, 2023. 

The program strongly encourages applications from scholars from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in graduate education, including but not limited to individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups (including individuals who identify as Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander); individuals from a limited-income background or an economically or educationally underserved community; and individuals with disabilities. In addition, we are looking for students who are interested in questions and topics directly related to the institute’s mission. The SNF Agora Academy seeks fellows who would engage actively with and benefit from a multidisciplinary scholarly community, academic and professional mentorship, and research development opportunities.
