Clayman Institute for Gender Research -- Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

Funding Agency:
Stanford University

The Clayman Institute offers a two-year postdoctoral fellowship. Recent social science Ph.D.'s (including Sociology, History, Communications, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, and Anthropology) whose research focuses on gender with an intersectional perspective are eligible. We encourage scholars with a strong interest in interdisciplinary methods to apply.

While in residence at the Institute, postdoctoral fellows are expected to participate in Clayman Institute activities throughout the academic year in addition to pursuing their own research.  

Postdoctoral fellows participate in our community of Clayman Institute faculty research fellows, faculty affiliates, and graduate dissertation fellows through their own research and contributions to our goal of reinvigorating gender equality. Postdoctoral fellows' responsibilities include contributing to the Clayman Institute's Gender News, working with Graduate Dissertation Fellows, participating in professional development workshops, and attending our regularly scheduled faculty luncheon discussions.

The postdoctoral fellows play a critical role in Gender News, which is the public outreach component of the Clayman Institute and our affiliated scholars. To increase the impact of innovative work on gender equality, Gender News publishes articles on gender research for academic and general audiences. Postdoctoral fellows write articles for Gender News that include summaries of the latest peer-reviewed gender research, interviews with Institute faculty research fellows and faculty affiliates, and reviews of relevant academic conferences.
