Just Launched: New Zolberg IRC Fellowships

The Zolberg Institute is pleased to open applications to join the Fall 2018 cohort of Zolberg IRC fellows. 

We are recruiting for three discrete positions, but anyone is welcome to submit a statement of interest to pursue another relevant area of research with the IRC and Zolberg teams:

The deadline to apply is September 17th at 2:00pm. Please submit a cover letter, CV and three work samples (writing and/or design portfolio) to Cayce Pack <packc@newschool.edu> with the subject line “Zolberg IRC Fellowship- POSITION NAME”. Interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis and interested applicants are encouraged to submit materials ASAP.

Fellows will begin work at IRC on October 1st and work through the winter intersession. Fellows will have the opportunity to work on research, policy communications, and applied innovation projects in areas like migration & protection, education in emergencies, and creative applications of technology or finance to solve grand humanitarian challenges.

Fellows will benefit from the mentorship of the Zolberg leadership—humanitarian professionals and migration scholars — and the opportunity to work alongside specialists at the New York headquarters of the International Rescue Committee.

Fellows will develop discrete skills (human centered design, behavioral science, machine learning) with the potential for travel and field work to IRC’s 25 domestic offices and 30+ country programs. Fellows will participate in regular knowledge exchange with the Zolberg Institute community. Fellows will also gain access to the ever-growing Zolberg Fellows alumni network, with opportunities to present on work, gain collaborations and connections, and project funding.

This is an excellent opportunity for early career scholars, future humanitarian leaders, transdisciplinary designers, and others to bridge theory and practice and turn ideas into action.
