CISSR invites University of Chicago faculty and doctoral students to submit proposals to join its inaugural cohort of Research Fellows for the 2017-2018 academic year. We welcome internationally-oriented and empirically rigorous social science research projects from diverse theoretical and methodological approaches. Applications are due by March 22, 2017.


About Us

The Center for International Social Science Research is an eclectic intellectual community devoted to nourishing empirical international research across the social sciences. We seek to spark and sustain critical discussions that traverse disciplinary, methodological, and geographic boundaries. CISSR supports work that informs and transforms debates on global issues within the academy and beyond.


To promote the pursuit of social science and the study of topics that are global in nature at the University, CISSR sponsors a Research Fellows program, annual book workshops, and other research activities.
