Full Text of JOE Listing:
The School of Education at the University of California, Irvine is hiring two postdoctoral fellows for two years beginning with the 2013-14 academic year. The fellowship includes an annual salary of $50,000, plus health insurance, and funding for conference travel, professional development, and a computer fund.

Postdoctoral fellows will join an interdisciplinary research team led by faculty with appointments in the School of Education, Department of Economics and Paul Merage School of Business. The heart of the research opportunities provided to is a five-year NICHD-funded program project (P01). The program project's principal goal is to understand why human capital intervention programs and policies, directed at children in the preschool, middle childhood and adolescent stages of development, have the effects, non-effects and, in some cases, perverse effects that they do. Taken together, the group's collective and coordinated efforts constitute a research network called the Irvine Network on Interventions in Development. Greg Duncan is the PI of the research and postdoctoral fellowship grant.

The University of California, Irvine is an equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through diversity and strongly encourages applications from all qualified applicants, including women and minorities.
