Under the direction of Dr. Charles Asher Small, Founder and Executive Director, ISGAP; Director, ISGAPWoolf Institute Fellowship Training Programme on Critical Antisemitism Studies, Cambridge, U.K.; and with the support of a group of leading international scholars and policymakers, this programme will house research fellows for two academic years of at the Woolf Institute, Cambridge, U.K.

ISGAP is seeking two exceptional candidates who hold a Ph.D./D.Phil. in a related discipline with significant post-qualification research experience and who are authorities within the fields of contemporary antisemitism, discrimination and Human Rights. 

How to Apply:
Applicants are required to submit a research proposal that will be undertaken during the fellowship. The proposal should be rooted in conceptual and quantitative/qualitative interdisciplinary analysis, in order to ensure that their work provides impactful insights into the examination of contemporary antisemitism, discrimination and human rights, in a time of globalisation. The relevance of the research topic will have bearing on the application and selection process, and each candidate should demonstrate expertise as well as an ability to develop innovative research.

Candidates will be selected by the ISGAP Steering Committee, chaired by Dr. Charles Asher Small.  

*Research Fellows are expected to reside in Cambridge, United Kingdom, during the academic year.

The Fellowship Training Programme in Critical Contemporary Antisemitism Studies aims to foster an innovative approach to the interdisciplinary study of contemporary antisemitism and help to develop a School of thought for Contemporary Critical Antisemitism Studies. It will also serve as a foundation for a viable interdisciplinary framework to decode and map contemporary antisemitism as it also relates to issues of discrimination and human rights. 

ISGAPWoolf Research Fellows will be expected to engage in ‘strategic research’ projects and subject matter, supervised by Dr. Charles Asher Small, and other academics and visiting scholars. Fellows will also be expected to help to develop and coordinate programming, such as academic seminar series and international conferences in which they will present their work to colleagues.
