WZB Berlin: 30 Fellows in the “College for Interdisciplinary Education Research”

With funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Jacobs Foundation and in cooperation with various Leibniz institutes the newly-founded “College for interdisciplinary Education Research” offers the opportunity of interdisciplinary career advancement to 30 excellent junior scientists in educational science, psychology, economics and sociology during the early post-doctoral stage. Over a period of 2 years (in exceptional cases: 3 years), the College offers a range of activities for the advancement of interdisciplinary cooperation and methodological training in quantitative educational research.

The main shared research areas of the College are:

  • educational inequality and success against the odds
  • competence development as an educational and social process
  • returns to education

The college starts on March 1, 2013. Although the fellowships do not provide funding for employment, they offer funding for participation in multiple activities of the College, including research collaboration, various forms of training, and networking (see www.ciderweb.org). At the end of the first year, the fellows may apply for 7 post-doc-positions (from March 2014 to February 2016) to work on their own projects at one of participating Leibniz institutes. These 7 positions will be awarded in a competitive process.

The participating Leibniz institutes are: German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF, Prof. Dr. E. Klieme), German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin, Prof. Dr. C.K. Spieß), Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education (IPN, Prof. Dr. O. Köller), GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences (Prof. Dr. B. Rammstedt), Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB, Prof. Dr. H. Solga) and Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW, PD. Dr. F. Pfeiffer).

The working language of the College will be English.

2012-2013 Postdoctoral Fellowship: DENMARK

Scandinavian Consortium for Organization Research, Stanford University

Application deadline: 1 December 2011

The Scandinavian Consortium for Organization Research (SCANOR) at Stanford University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship beginning 1 September 2012. The fellowship is open for high-quality organizations researchers who work in the fields of management, education, sociology, political science, and the other social sciences. We especially welcome applications from researchers working on the following topics: organizational learning and design, user-driven innovation, forms of open innovation, sustainability and clean technologies, globalization, public-private interfaces, welfare reform, democracy and equality, higher education, and the knowledge society.

In this application cycle the program will award one fellowship to a scholar who has trained at a participating Danish university.

The fellow will be affiliated with a disciplinary department or school at Stanford University, and with SCANCOR. The fellowship provides opportunity to learn new topics and skills, and work closely with a Stanford faculty member, while participating in SCANCOR activities. Although there will be time for the fellow to pursue his/her current lines of scholarship, the expectation is that the fellow will collaborate with Stanford scholars and pursue research in tandem with their faculty sponsors.

The fellow also will act as bridge between the Nordic countries and Stanford University, while deepening the skills necessary for an international academic career: a depth of methodological knowledge, and the ability to write successfully for English-language journals.

Among the Stanford faculty who may be potential fellowship fellow/mentors are: Dan McFarland, Roy Pea and Mitchell Stevens at the School of Education; Karen Cook, Mark Granovetter, David Grusky, and Doug McAdam in the Department of Sociology; Steven Barley, Kathy Eisenhardt, and Riitta Katila in the Department of Management Science and Engineering; William Barnett, Glenn Carroll, Huggy Rao, and Jesper Sorensen at the Graduate School of Business; Dan Jurafsky and Chris Manning from the Departments of Linguistics and Computer Science; Fred Turner in Communication; and Ray Levitt in Civil Engineering.

The annual fellowship stipend is $53,000, plus the standard benefits that postdoctoral fellows at Stanford University receive. The fellowship program falls under U.S. Immigration J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa activities.

Descriptions of past and current fellows can be found at http://www.scancor.org/post-doc/

The postdoctoral fellowship application can be found at http://www.scancor.org/post-doc/application-process/postdoctoral-fellow-application/

Please include the following information:

1.) A cover letter detailing the reasons for the applicant’s interest in coming to Stanford and suggestions as to which faculty members they would be interested in working with if that faculty member have a reciprocal interest.

2.) A curriculum vitae.

3.) A fellowship proposal detailing the research that the fellow would undertake while at Stanford (five page limit).

4.) A writing sample consisting of either a dissertation chapter or a recent published paper.

5.) Graduate school transcripts in English (with proof that applicants have completed all the requirements for the PhD, or a letter from their PhD advisor stating they will do so by June 2012)

6.) Three letters of recommendation.

All materials must be received by 1 December 2011.

Questions about the program should be directed to Annette Eldredge, eldredge@stanford.edu
