Postdoctoral fellowship program in Science of Science Communication at the Annenberg
Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania
As part of its Annenberg Center for the Advanced Study of Communication, the Annenberg Public Policy Center (APPC; http://www.annenbergpublicpolicycenter.org) of the University of Pennsylvania’s postdoctoral fellowship program in the Science of Science Communication (SSC) is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 academic year. Fellows in the program will work closely with other fellows and senior researchers of APPC on scholarship designed to understand basic problems (e.g., source credibility, communication processes, attitude change, belief formation, conspiracy theories, and misinformation debunking) as well as applied ones (e.g., climate change, vaccines, and COVID-19). The program is interdisciplinary and is currently led by social psychologist and communication scholar, Dolores Albarracin https://www.asc.upenn.edu/research/centers/social-action-lab).
First-year fellows will receive a stipend of $65,000 and serve in a 12-month appointment, beginning July 1, 2022. An allowance of up to $1,500 will be provided to offset pre-approved, receipt-documented relocation expenses, and APPC will reimburse up to $2,000 in travel to high-level conferences to present APPC research.
