Apply for the Fully Funded University of Pennsylvania CSERI Fellowships. The deadline for the application is 21st December 2020.
The Penn Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Race, and Immigration (CSERI) invites applications, starting October 12, 2020, for a one-year postdoctoral research fellowship in the social sciences (with a possible renewal for a second year).
The 2021-2022 CSERI Postdoctoral Research Fellow will help organize and participate in faculty/graduate student workshops. Also, aid in the evaluation of the progress of graduate students and undergraduates receiving research grants, and 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.
- The stipend for the postdoctoral fellowship is $53,000 plus relevant fees and individual health insurance.
- Additionally, the position also provides $2,500 in research support, with the opportunity to apply for additional funding.
Applicants must meet the following criteria
- 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 2019), or who expect to complete their degree by July 2021.
- Similarly, skills with statistical analysis, qualitative software, GIS, experimental, and other approaches are desirable, but not necessary.
- Also, applications from women, minorities, and underrepresented communities are encouraged.
