Research Residency Program

The Dispute Resolution Research Center at Northwestern University is announcing a five year pilot program of Research Residencies. A DRRC Research Residency scholar will spend from three to six months with a research group at a host institution, not limited to Northwestern University.  The purpose of the residency is to promote cross-fertilization of research in the areas of negotiation, conflict, and dispute resolution.

Residencies are open to scholars at any career stage but are particularly designed for advanced PhDs, Post Doctoral Fellows or Junior Faculty members.  Host may specify the level of their residency.  Residencies are open to any discipline of school, for example, political science, psychology, economics, sociology, anthropology, history, or public policy, management, law or communications.

DRRC Research Residencies are not tourism grants.  DRRC expects the resident to become immersed in ongoing research at the host institution, as well as to participate in and/or initiate new research.  DRRC will expect a short report at the end of the residency.  DRRC encourages residents to present their research at international meetings.


Depending on the candidate's needs, DRRC will fund up to $20,000 per residency for: travel, health insurance, visas, inoculations, living expenses, possibly tuition and fees as may be requires, or software (not hardware).  DRRC anticipates 3 month stays will be supported for no more than $10,000 and 6 months stays for not more than $20,000.  DRRC will fund up to $100,000 in residencies a year during the pilot period.


DRRC anticipates that most resident-host requests for funding  will be submitted by May 1 and funded by May 30, for a September or October start;  by October 1 and funded by November 1 for a January or February start; and by February 1 and funded by March 1 for a June start.  In 2015 DRRC will accept proposals for funding on or before July 15 2015 and again on or before October 1, 2015


Residencies are open to scholars at any career stage but are particularly designed for advanced PhDs, post docs or junior faculty.  There are no nationality restrictions for candidates or hosts.
