Three 2 Year Interdisciplinary Research Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of Denver

The University of Denver Interdisciplinary Research Institute for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE), a new interdisciplinary center dedicated to research and creative work that addresses issues of (in)equality, social justice, and inclusivity, invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship beginning September 1, 2014 researching the following areas:

•Race, Class, and Gender Inequities in K-12 Education: The post-doc will advance the study of (in)equality by researching the ways in which academic achievement is connected to larger forces of race, class, and/or gender inequalities, particularly as they manifest in teaching and school discipline practices.  For more information, please link here:  http://www.du.edu/irise/media/documents/irise-postdoc-school-inequalities.pdf

•Inequality in the Provision of Access to Open Space: The post-doc will explore the history of open space protection, examining racial, ethnic, and socio-economic factors that may have influenced decisions about location, funding, and protection of public open space.  For more information, please link here:  http://www.du.edu/irise/media/documents/irise-postdoc-openspace.pdf

•Immigrant Latino Youth Adaptation in the Context of Inequality: The post-doc will use data from the Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Study (CILS) to examine the adaptation of 2nd generation immigrant children, potentially advancing our understanding of strengths and challenges of immigrant families, aid the development of interventions that support Latino youths, and provide direct service to the community through community-academic partnerships.  For more information, please link here:  http://www.du.edu/irise/media/documents/irise-postdoc-immigrant-youth.pdf

Applicants must have completed all requirements for their terminal degree by June 30, 2014. Candidates must also be no more than 3 years from the awarding of their degree (i.e., September 2011).

Fellows are sought for their expertise within their field of study; engagement in research, scholarship, and creative work grounded in understandings of (in)equality; and/or a consideration for the many ways in which the academy or particular fields promote or hinder the advancement of historically underrepresented communities.

Salary is competitive and includes comprehensive benefits. In addition to the salary and research space, the postdoctoral fellow will have access to DU research facilities.
