Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies
IERES is able to support its full-time faculty with a number of opportunities,
Research assistance. IERES faculty are eligible to apply for limited student research assistance. For details on the program and how to apply, please click here.
Book launches. If an IERES faculty member has a book on Europe or Eurasia coming out in 2012 or later, IERES can organize a public event where the author can present it and we can celebrate its publication, perhaps over lunch or some kind of reception. Faculty inquiries should be directed to IERES Assistant Director Robert Orttung (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Book incubators. For IERES faculty who have a book manuscript that is fully drafted but still needs input from other specialists before a final edit is performed, IERES may be able to organize a "book incubator" workshop for it. For these book incubators, we invite a small group of specialists from the DC area plus (budget permitting) someone we fly in from another U.S. city for a day or half day to discuss the manuscript with an eye to improving it for a final revision before publication. These should generally be books intended for a peer-reviewed academic press and relating directly to Europe or Eurasia as we define it. Faculty inquiries should be directed to IERES Assistant Director Robert Orttung (email@example.com).
Opportunities for teaching and research in Ukraine. IERES' Petrach Program on Ukraine can support faculty interested in teaching for a semester at the Ivan Franko National University in Lviv, Ukraine. Interested faculty should contact the IERES Director approximately a year before the planned visit since this will require setting aside funds from the William and Helen Petrach Endowment and making arrangements with Ivan Franko National University. When funds are available, IERES can also provide some limited support for faculty to conduct field research in Ukraine, perhaps in connection with giving a lecture or two at Ivan Franko National University in Lviv. Interested faculty should contact IERES Director Henry Hale at least three months in advance of the planned research trip to discuss this possibility.
