The Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance (NCGG) at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs seeks two postdoctoral or more candidates for the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in regional political economy for the 2018-2019 academic year. This fellows program is targeted at developing a generation of scholars able to analyze and make policy recommendations about the regional political economy in the Middle East, East, South, or Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America. The Center invites candidates with a background in economics, political science, contemporary history, sociology, law, business, and other disciplines bearing on the study of markets, politics, and economic development, focusing on the regions of the Middle East, East, South, or Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America to apply. Scholarly work should explore the ways in which the politics within and between a set of countries intersect with natural resource endowments, market conditions, technological and physical infrastructure, and cultural biases to explain existing patterns of economic development and to promote higher levels of development more effectively. 

The Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance began operation in Fall 2004 and is directed by Helen Milner. The Center strives to develop a tight-knit intellectual community at Princeton and promote ties between the academic and policy communities involved in globalization and international governance issues.
