The Transatlantic Post-Doc Fellowship for International Relations and Security (TAPIR)

Call for Applications: Open to candidates who have recently received their doctorate in social and political sciences or economics and whose research focuses on topics of international relations and/or international peace and security issues.

Closing date: 

Fellowships are granted for a duration of 24 months to prepare fellows for a career in policy-oriented and international research at renowned think tanks and political consulting research institutes.

Fellows spend three eight-month stays at research institutions or think tanks participating in the program - at least one on the Eastern, and one on the Western side of the Atlantic.

Conceived to strengthen transatlantic ties on key policy challenges facing the United States and Europe, the TAPIR program is now in its second decade.

Many fellows have moved from the fellowship into influential positions in think tanks, universities, and government.

The fellowship continues to offer a unique entree into the world of in depth, but practical and objective policy analysis at a time when such analysis has never been greater.

Alongside Chatham House, other participating institutes include:
Center for Security Studies (CSS), Zurich;
Finnish Institute of International Affairs (FIIA), Helsinki;
German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), Washington, D.C., Berlin, Paris;
Institut français des relations internationales (IFRI), Paris;
