Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University has created a postdoctoral fellowship program designed to encourage outstanding PhD recipients to pursue academic careers. The fellowship program seeks applicants whose research or creative practice, teaching and service contributes to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education and, in particular, the advancement of women and underrepresented minorities. This program complements and supplements the university-wide President’s Post-Doctoral Fellowship program (https://www.cmu.edu/faculty-office/ppfp/).

The Heinz College (http://www.heinz.cmu.edu) is a multi-disciplinary academic unit dedicated to the study of issues that involve people, public policy and information technology. The College, since its founding in 1968 as the School of Urban and Public Affairs, has had a long history of commitment to inclusiveness, made ever more relevant in today’s world of technology-driven change.

Applicants who are working in applied microeconomics, statistics, machine learning, data science, operations research, management science, organizational behavior and information systems broadly construed, are encouraged to apply to the program. We offer postdoctoral fellowships and mentoring to scholars whose research or teaching will contribute to diversity at Heinz. Applicants are encouraged to contact faculty at the Heinz College to learn more about research in their area of interest and discover synergies with the centers of excellence at the College.

The award includes a competitive post-doctoral fellowship and up to $5000 for research-related and program travel expenses. The post doc will have the opportunity to teach up to 1 course in each academic year of their tenure at the Heinz College. Each award is for a minimum of 12-months and may be renewable for an additional year subject to demonstration of research productivity.

Qualifications
Applicants should have received a Ph.D. within the last two years – or expected by September 2021. We are seeking scholars who are broadly interested in the areas of research being pursued by faculty at the College and with the potential to bring to their academic and research careers the critical perspective that comes from their understanding of the experiences of members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education in the United States.

Application Instructions
Applications should include a cover letter discussing how your research or teaching will contribute to diversity at Heinz College, a C.V., up to two research papers, and contact information for three professional references. Applications will be reviewed beginning March 1, 2021. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
