Post Doc Fellowship

The Human Rights Center is hiring a postdoctoral fellow to conduct research on transitional justice and advocacy relating to the US-Vietnam War. The primary purpose of this research is to explore:

  1. The types of justice-seeking that have occurred within the US-Vietnam War context.
  2. The effectiveness of the various types of justice-seeking (e.g., veteran movements, memorialization, film and media, legal remedies, the Russell Tribunal)
  3. Comparison of the US-Vietnam context with other past human rights violations contexts, such as slavery reparations and justice for indigenous peoples.
  4. The impact and implications of the war’s legacy in contemporary US society, politics and military engagement including in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The fellow will be supervised by the HRC Executive Director and will hold additional teaching and other duties to support various scholarship aspects of the HRC portfolio.

Applications close: April 15, 2019
