The Center for Research on Inequalities and the Life Course (CIQLE) seeks applications for a postdoctoral fellowship for one or two years, to start in Fall 2014.
CIQLE is one of four research centers in the Department of Sociology at Yale University. The center hosts a weekly seminar, thematic conferences, and regular methods workshops. It also hosts senior and junior visiting scholars from the US and overseas. The core Sociology faculty fellows of the Center are Richard Breen, Lloyd Grieger, Vida Maralani, Andrew Papachristos, and Christopher Wildeman. Their research covers topics such as inequality, intergenerational mobility, gender inequalities, education, health inequality, incarceration, crime, and poverty and social welfare policy. CIQLE members undertake international and comparative research as well as research focusing on the US.
Applicants should be interested in quantitative empirical research on social inequality and expect to use 50% of their time for research collaboration with CIQLE faculty. Current stipends are approximately $39,264 per year plus benefits. Applicants should have completed their Ph.D. by the beginning of the appointment but not earlier than 2010.
Please send a cover letter, curriculum vita, a 2 to 5 page description of your postdoctoral research plans, and a writing sample electronically to email@example.com, and arrange for two confidential letters of reference to be sent to the same address. The deadline for applications is Dec. 31, 2013.
