Applications are now being accepted for the Kroc Institute’s Visiting Research Fellows Program. The Program seeks to bring outstanding scholars focused on peace research to the University of Notre Dame for all or part of the 2010-11 academic year.
Visiting research fellows join the Kroc Institute for up to a year to conduct peace research, collaborate with faculty, and participate in the life of the Institute and the wider Notre Dame community.
Currently, the Institute particularly seeks applications for research focusing on:
- the comparative study of peace processes
- Islam and/or Catholicism in modern conflict settings
Applications for residence in 2010-2011 must be postmarked by November 1, 2009.
The program has supported fellowships for research on a wide range of topics, including Islam and the peacebuilding process in Tajikistan, the role of civil society in peace processes, and an analysis of interventions in the Horn of Africa.
