2020-2021 Academic Year
Application period closed
The Penn Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Race and Immigration (CSERI) invites applications, starting November 4, 2019 for a one-year postdoctoral research fellowship in the social sciences.
CSERI is a center initiative supported by the University of Pennsylvania and the School of Arts and Sciences. In addition to this post-doctoral fellowship, CSERI will host visiting scholars and graduate students, organize workshops initiated by the Center’s Faculty Advisory Council, and support graduate and undergraduate student social science research at Penn.
The 2020-2021 CSERI Postdoctoral Research Fellow will help organize and participate in faculty/graduate student workshops, aid in the evaluation of the progress of graduate students and undergraduates receiving research grants, and can collaborate with CSERI faculty affiliates on research projects. However, the Fellow will largely have the opportunity to pursue their own research and participate more generally in the intellectual life of the Penn community. There are no mandatory teaching responsibilities, but the post-doc is expected to be in residence.
The stipend for the postdoctoral fellowship is $53,000 plus relevant fees and health insurance. The position also provides $2,500 in research support, with the opportunity to apply for additional funding.
Applications are welcome from scholars who have received their Ph.D. or equivalent degrees in the social sciences in the last two years (not earlier than 2018), or who expect to complete their degree by July 2020.
Skills with statistical analysis, qualitative software, GIS, experimental and other approaches are desirable, but not necessary.
