The Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University offers a two-year postdoctoral fellowship that focuses on the Institute’s current theme, “Beyond the Stalled Revolution: Reinvigorating Gender Equality in the Twenty-first Century.” Recent Ph.D.’s in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences whose research centers feminist, women’s or gender studies are eligible. We encourage scholars with a strong interest in interdisciplinary methods to apply. While in residence at the Institute, Postdoctoral Scholars are expected to participate in Clayman Institute activities throughout the academic year in addition to pursuing their own research.  Our application will be available to access October 1, 2017 through January 11, 2018.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and its staff are deeply concerned for the people and institutions affected by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Now that the consequences of Hurricane Harvey are upon us, new science and engineering questions are being raised. Through this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), NSF encourages the submission of proposals that seek to address the challenges related to this storm. NSF also will support fundamental science and engineering research projects whose results may enable our country to better prepare for, respond to, recover from, or mitigate future catastrophic events. Research proposals relating to a better fundamental understanding of the impacts of the storm (physical, biological and societal), human aspects of natural disasters (including first responders and the general public), emergency response methods, and approaches that promise to reduce future damage also are welcome.

With NSF support, researchers have a long history of advancing understanding and knowledge about natural and built environments, as well as the relationship between humans and their environments in the context of large-scale disasters. Fundamental science and technological advancements are vital to our continued improvement of disaster preparation and restoration. For example, NSF-funded research has advanced understanding of the mechanisms that cause levee failures, gained new knowledge on the performance of critical infrastructure, and supported efforts to improve flood water decontamination. Researchers also have improved our ability to better predict, with longer lead times, the path of tropical cyclones. NSF support for researchers has led to the deployment of underwater rescue robots in an effort to safeguard emergency workers, developed real-time flood potential models, conducted effectiveness assessments of oil plume dispersants, assessed and advised better hazard-resistant buildings, and developed liquefaction mitigation methods in response to earthquakes. In addition, NSF-funded researchers have made ground-breaking discoveries about the long-term psychological and emotional impacts of national disasters.

The Negotiating Agreement in Congress Research Grants are aimed at scholars who seek to understand the conditions under which political negotiation can be achieved (or not achieved) in Congress and other legislative arenas. The grants provide up to $10,000 of funding for each awardee, to be used for up to one year of research and writing. Applicants must have a PhD in hand by the application deadline and must hold an affiliation with a college or university based in the United States. For more information, please visit www.ssrc.org/nacg or contact us at democracy@ssrc.org.

The deadline for applications is September 15, 2017.

The Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN) is seeking applicants for 2018 Early Career Work and Family Fellowships.

The goal of the program is to help promising young scholars establish career successes, as well as integrate them within the WFRN research community.  Fellows receive membership in the WFRN, conference registration, and $500 to attend a preconference and the 2018 WFRN Conference (to be held June 21-23 in Washington DC). Fellows will be connected with one another in periodic encounters beyond the conference, intended to facilitate collaboration and peer-mentorship. 

To be eligible, candidates must have received their doctorate in 2015 or later and have yet to progress into tenured or secure senior level positions.  Information about the program and application materials can be found at https://workfamily.sas.upenn.edu/content/early-career-fellowship-program. The deadline for receipt of applications is September 15, 2017. Questions about the program can be addressed to the program director, Stephen Sweet at SSWEET@ITHACA.EDU. 

The Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN) is seeking applicants for 2016 Early Career Work and Family Fellowships. The goal of the program is to help promising young scholars establish career successes, as well as connect them to the WFRN community. Fifteen scholars will be selected for the program.  Fellows receive a one year membership in the WFRN, conference registration, and $500 to help defer expenses to attend the 2016 WFRN Conference (to be held June 23-25 in Washington DC). At the conference, special events will be targeted to serve interests of fellows, including networking opportunities with senior scholars and teaching/research workshops. In addition, fellows will be connected with one another in periodic encounters beyond the conference, intended to facilitate collaboration and peer-mentorship. To be eligible, candidates must have received their doctorate in 2013 or later and have yet to progress into tenured or secure senior level positions.  Eligibility is not restricted on the basis of national location. Information about the program and application materials can be found at https://workfamily.sas.upenn.edu/content/early-career-fellowship-program. The deadline for receipt of applications is September 15, 2015. Questions about the program can be addressed to the program director, Stephen Sweet at SSWEET@ITHACA.EDU.
