IDEAL Provostial Fellows for Studies in Race and Ethnicity

Stanford University, in conjunction with its IDEAL initiative, is pleased to announce that it is seeking to appoint four to five early career fellows engaged in the study of race and ethnicity. The purpose of this program is to support the work of early-career researchers, who will lead the next generation of scholarship in race and ethnicity and whose work will point the way forward for reshaping race relations in America. Fellowships may be in any of the seven schools in the University (Business, Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, Education, Engineering, Humanities & Sciences, Law, Medicine). Selection criteria includes the originality and quality of the research, as well as demonstrated potential for intellectual achievement. The term of these fellowships is three years, with a start date of September 1, 2022.
