The newly formed Committee on Global Thought at Columbia University in New 
York City seeks Post-doctoral Fellows for the academic year 2007-2008.  The 
goal of the Committee is to provide a space for cross-disciplinary, 
transnational, and otherwise expansive exploration of the world, including 
processes of globalization, comparisons past and present, and pressing 
contemporary issues.  The Committee welcomes applicants from all disciplines 
and seeks a mix of fellows from the sciences, social sciences, and 
humanities to help create a new agenda for global thinking and action.

Fellows will be expected to teach or assist with one undergraduate or 
graduate course as well as to plan and participate in symposia and other 
activities of the Committee.  The remaining half of the Fellow's time will 
be devoted to individual research.  Salaries will be competitive.

Please send CV, a letter explaining research interests and plans for 
research and writing during your tenure with the Committee, at least one 
paper or other suitable evidence of scholarship, and three letters of 
reference to:

Dr. Joseph Stiglitz
Chair, Committee on Global Thought
814 Uris Hall
Columbia University
New York, NY 10027

Review of applications will begin January 1, 2007.  Final deadline is April 
1, 2007.

Additional information about the Committee on Global Thought can be obtained
