Postdoctoral Research Fellowships
Call for Applications: 2011-12 Deadline: January 31, 2011
The Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships for the academic year 2011-12. Recent Ph.D.'s in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences whose research focuses on gender are eligible. We encourage scholars with a strong interest in interdisciplinary methods to apply.
The postdoctoral fellows will focus on the Institute's theme of "Beyond the Stalled Revolution: Reinvigorating Gender Equality in the Twenty-first Century.” While in residence at the Institute, fellows are expected to participate in Clayman Institute activities throughout the academic year in addition to pursuing their own research. Postdoctoral fellow responsibilities will include contributing to the Clayman Gender News service, working with Graduate Dissertation Fellows, participating in our OpEd Project, and attending our regularly scheduled faculty luncheon discussions.
The appointment is for one year. Applicants must have their doctoral degree in hand no later than 30 days prior to the appointment start date and be no more than three years after the awarding of their degree. Postdoctoral Fellows will receive a stipend and benefits, set and adjusted in accordance with Stanford University rules, and must be in residence for at least three academic quarters, beginning in the fall quarter of the 2011-12 academic year.
The Clayman Institute is committed to the principle of equal opportunity, and fair and open competition.
