RWJF Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Scholars in Health Policy Research Program is pleased to announce a call for postdoctoral fellowship applications.

In the 2012 - 2014 cohort, the Program will enable up to 9 outstanding young social scientists to spend two years in residence at one of three nationally prominent universities:  Harvard University; the University of California, Berkeley (in collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco); or the University of Michigan.

However, please do not be misled by the Program’s name.  It is not intended only or primarily for individuals who have done work in health.  Rather, preference is given to applicants who have not previously worked in health-related research, and past fellows have come from diverse backgrounds within the three core disciplines of economics, political science, and sociology.  The Program may be especially beneficial for tenure-track junior faculty members for whom a two-year fellowship experience would enrich and facilitate their research and scholarly work.

The deadline for receipt of applications is October 12, 2011 (5 PM EDT).  Additional details about the Program are available on our web site: http://www.healthpolicyscholars.org
