The Department of Sociology at Rice University is offering two postdoctoral fellowships (two years in length) to begin July 2015. Applicants are encouraged to pursue their own research agenda during their fellowship, but we will give priority to applicants who also establish a collaborative research plan on a topic of mutual interest with one or more of our faculty members (http://sociology.rice.edu).
For one of the two positions special consideration will be given to those working in one or more of the following subareas: urban sociology, environmental sociology, and stratification. Teaching responsibilities are limited to one undergraduate course during the two years. In addition to an annual salary of $52,000, the fellowship provides office space, computer equipment, and a $1,000 annual travel account. The application deadline is January 15th 2015, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.
Applications must be submitted in a two-step process. First, applicants must apply online through Ricework at:
In addition to providing the basic application information, applicants must upload their curriculum vitae (including a list of references), and a 2-5 page proposal for research to be conducted during the postdoctoral period, to this website. Second, please email a PDF copy of at least one recent publication to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with three letters of recommendation (submitted separately by the letter writers to this email address).
Questions about the postdoctoral fellowship should also be emailed to email@example.com.
