OPPORTUNITY: Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship, 2013-2015

Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship, 2013-2015 (USC Center for the Study of Immigration Integration and USC Department of Sociology)
The USC Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration (CSII) and the USC Department of Sociology announce a two-year post-doctoral Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship, beginning Fall 2013. The fellowship focuses on immigrant populations and the potential impact and/or need for Comprehensive Immigration reform (CIR) for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 academic years. While we would prefer a post-doctoral teaching fellow looking at the populations likely to benefit from CIR in order to help us build a research project looking at the longitudinal effects, we would also be open to candidates who would study the politics of change. We would prefer an interdisciplinary researcher who could utilize and teach mixed methods approaches (i.e., both quantitative and qualitative) to Sociology graduates and undergraduates in his/her teaching role. The fellow will teach one course each semester at USC and is expected to conduct research with CSII. 
The fellowship will offer a competitive salary, a yearly $2,000 research allowance, and fringe benefits. The fellow must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by mid-August, 2013.

Review of applications will commence on May 03, 2013, with a decision expected approximately May 17, 2013. 

Please follow the application process and upload the following materials:

            • C.V.

            • Detailed description of the nature of the research to be undertaken during the fellowship period

            • Relevant writing sample of no more than 30 pages, and

            • Contact information for three references (they will be asked to directly submit on your behalf).
