IDEAL Provostial Fellows

Stanford University, in conjunction with its IDEAL initiative, is pleased to announce that it is seeking to appoint four to five early-career fellows engaged in the study of race and ethnicity.

The purpose of this program is to support the work of early-career researchers, who will lead the next generation of scholarship in race and ethnicity and whose work will point the way forward for reshaping race relations in America. Fellowships may be in any of the schools in the university. Selection criteria include the originality and quality of the research, as well as demonstrated potential for intellectual achievement. The term of these fellowships is three years, with a start date of September 1, 2021.

To be eligible for an early career fellowship, a candidate must be within three years of the date of their terminal degree at the time of appointment. Scholars interested in any field of study are accepted. Early-career fellows should have received their terminal degree (PhD, JD, MFA, EdD, DSW, etc.) prior to the start of the fellowship.

Specifically, a cover letter detailing the candidate’s interest in the position; a statement of teaching and research interests and how these interests would be advanced by a fellowship, including needs for laboratory access or special equipment; three letters of recommendation; a curriculum vitae; and samples of written work.

The deadline for receiving applications for early career fellowships is November 1, 2020. No application will be accepted after the deadline. Applications will not be accepted by email.
