Ohio State PhD Wins National Dissertation Award

Patrick S. Osmer — December 04, 2014


Congratulations to Joshua Kertzer who was awarded a Distinguished Dissertation Award last week during the Council of Graduate Schools' annual meeting in Washington, DC. Josh earned his PhD in political science from Ohio State in 2013, and his advisor was Richard Herrmann.

Josh is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Government at Harvard University.

This is the nation's most prestigious honor for doctoral dissertations, and I was delighted to be present when he received this award. Josh's dissertation, "Resolve in International Politics," was selected from 71 nominees representing 25 disciplines in the social sciences.

I often say that graduate education is distinguished by three things: creativity, problem solving, and creating new knowledge. Josh's research exemplifies all three.  His research examines the concept of resolve, which is a commonly used, but insufficiently understood, independent variable in international relations.

I am delighted that the Graduate School's nomination of Josh led to this recognition of his significant and original research contributions.

Patrick S. Osmer is vice provost for graduate studies and dean of the Graduate School at Ohio State. He is a past chair of the board of directors for the Council of Graduate Schools. Osmer was chair of the Ohio State astronomy department from 1993-2006.
