Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Inequality in America Initiative seeks applications from recent doctoral degree recipients interested in joining a multidisciplinary network of Harvard researchers working to address the manifold challenges of inequality. This program is intended to seed new research directions, facilitate collaboration across disciplines, and develop new leaders in the study of inequality who can publish at the highest level, reach the widest audience, and impact policy.
The fellowship is a two-year postdoctoral training program. The award includes $68,000/year plus fringe; office space; a $17,500 research account; up to $3,000 (incl. taxes) for relocation; and up to $3,000 for a manuscript workshop in year two.
The program director will pair each fellow with two Harvard faculty mentors (one from outside the fellow’s primary discipline), participating in one or more of five research clusters:
• Mobility and Migration
• Science, Technology, Education, and Health
• Work, Family, and Opportunity
• Governance, Citizenship, and Social Justice
• America Inequality, Globally
Applicants to the fall 2021 program must have received a doctorate or equivalent terminal degree in April 2018 or later; applicants without a terminal degree must demonstrate that they will receive one by August 2021.
