Richard G. Starmann, Sr. Visiting Professorship Chair in Peace Studies

The Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, part of the Keough School of Global Affairs, is one of the world's leading centers for the study of the causes of violent conflict and strategies for sustainable peace. Kroc Institute faculty and fellows conduct interdisciplinary and cutting-edge research on a wide range of topics related to peace and justice.

The Institute announces the launch of a new one-year visiting fellowship for senior peace studies scholars doing peace research broadly construed. We welcome applications from scholars from any discipline who focus on one or more of the following themes:

  • Conflict transformation
  • Peace accord implementation
  • Intersectionality and peacebuilding
  • Justice and peace 
  • Nuclear disarmament
  • War, genocide, and mass atrocities
  • Peace, climate change and environmental justice 
  • Religion, conflict and peacebuilding
  • Mediation and other forms of peacemaking
  • Social media, disinformation, technology, and conflict
  • Social movements

The successful holder of the visiting fellowship will be expected to deliver a major public talk on their areas of research, teach a graduate course in their area of interest, and be active in the intellectual life of the Institute.

The visiting fellowship comes with a generous stipend, office space, and an apartment on campus. Fellowships begin at the start of the University of Notre Dame’s fall semester (August) and run for one academic year.
