Applicants must be post-PhD and pre-tenure and must have a complete book manuscript ready for circulation and discussion by August 1, 2016. Only first book projects will be considered. Each manuscript will be discussed in depth by at least two senior colleagues. The goal of the discussion is to prepare the manuscript for submission to an appropriate press. Research can focus on any aspect of the contemporary politics of the broader Middle East.

To apply please send by 5:00 pm April 15, 2016 to pomepsteam@gmail.com in one PDF document:

  • CV and 2-3 page description of the project
  • A chapter-length writing sample (preferably the introductory chapter of the dissertation/book manuscript)
  • A list of 3 to 5 senior scholars from whom you most would like feedback (including at least 2 of whom are not primarily Middle East specialists)
  • Contact information for at least two academic references (including a dissertation chair)

Please contact Lauren Baker at pomepsteam@gmail.com or 202-994-6789 with questions.
