Dietrich School Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship: Economics of Diversity
The University of Pittsburgh’s Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Economics focusing on the economics of diversity beginning August 1, 2019.
The fellow will help to advance the department’s goal of diversity in research, teaching and student composition by engaging in research on diversity, and by working with other faculty members over this two-year period to develop a course on the economics of diversity.
The fellow will teach two courses per year, complete scholarly work, and participate in the intellectual communities of the Department of Economics and the Dietrich School. The fellow will help foster collaborations between the Department’s scholars working on different aspects of diversity, including issues of gender, race, migration and social mobility. Within the Dietrich School and across campus, rich opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange are available in a number of vibrant multidisciplinary programs, including the Center for Urban Education, the University Center for International Studies, the Center for Race and Social Problems and the University Center for Social and Urban Research.
Applicants must have the PhD in hand by July 1, 2019. Individuals whose PhD predates January 1, 2017 are ineligible. For more information about the fellowship program, go to
