August 09, 2023
Northwestern Qatar Professor Anto Mohsin has been selected to be part of the inaugural cohort of Northwestern University’s Roberta Buffett Institute for Global Affairs’ flagship fellowship program, Buffett Faculty Fellows.
Mohsin, who teaches courses in Science and Technology Studies (STS) at Northwestern Qatar as part of the Liberal Arts Program, is among 11 scholars from across seven Northwestern University schools selected for the program this year. Together, they make up the first cohort of the expanded Buffett Faculty Fellows Program, which aims to foster an interdisciplinary intellectual community within the Northwestern community by facilitating scholarly exchanges and providing mentorship meetings between senior and junior faculty.
As part of the 2023–24 cohort, Mohsin will join fellow Buffett Faculty Fellows in Evanston in the upcoming academic year, where each of them will be in residence and take part in the fellowship’s activities and events for one academic quarter and complete research projects supported by fellowship funds. Throughout his fellowship, he will also work with other fellows in supporting the Buffett Institute in the evaluation of the Buffett Faculty Fellows Program and the development of other research and curricular activities.
“I’m very honored and excited to be selected as part of the inaugural cohort of the Buffett Faculty Fellows Program. I look forward to collaborating and exchanging ideas with my esteemed colleagues and advancing my research on electric infrastructure maintenance and the maintainers who carry out this crucial task to keep our infrastructure in good condition”
- Anto Mohsin, assistant professor in residence at Northwestern Qatar
This year’s fellows were selected from a large pool of applicants, based on various assessments of their scholarly and career backgrounds, including career stage, discipline, methodology in research or creative production, and global issue areas of focus. In the past, Northwestern faculty were selected for a Buffett Faculty Fellowship through joint appointments with one of Northwestern's schools.
"Congratulations to Professor Anto Mohsin for being selected amongst the inaugural cohort of Buffett Faculty Fellows Program,” said Marwan M. Kraidy, dean and CEO of Northwestern Qatar. “As a distinguished member of our faculty, I am confident that this fellowship will allow him to continue his important work and advance our understanding of complex global issues."
Mohsin’s selection for this program comes as Northwestern Qatar and Buffett Institute for Global Affairs expand collaborations to advance joint scholarly programs and faculty initiatives to address critical challenges and issues around the world.
