Michael G. Tiboris, currently a lecturer at San Diego State, has been awarded a fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). He will be a “Global Cities Fellow” at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
The primary responsibility of the Global Cities Fellow is to work with the studies team to develop policy-focused research, writing, and public education outreach on best policies and practices of global cities from a comparative perspective. In this role, the ACLS Public Fellow will identify best practices and lessons learned and convey them in an accessible manner to engage the general public and decision makers.
The fellowship is part of the ACLS Public Fellows program, which new and upcoming philosophy PhDs should think of applying to if they are looking for an opportunity to bring their training to bear on “real world” issues. The program “places recent PhDs from the humanities and humanistic social sciences in two-year staff positions at partnering organizations in government and the nonprofit sector. Fellows participate in the substantive work of these organizations and receive professional mentoring.” (via Johnny Brennan at ACLS)
