The Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) at Indiana University, Bloomington, invites applications for up to two CRRES Postdoctoral Fellowships. These fellowships provide support to scholars studying race and ethnicity from a broad range of fields in the social sciences and humanities, especially in the areas of education, public and environmental affairs, art and design, public health, business, law, and media. CRRES fellowships are designed to advance the careers of new scholars by providing opportunities to research, teach, and connect with mentors and other faculty in host departments or schools across campus. CRRES postdocs will be placed in one of IU’s sixteen degree-granting schools. Strong applicants will demonstrate evidence of scholarly potential that will make them competitive for tenure-track appointments at Indiana University and other research universities.

Terms of Agreement Fellows are expected to pursue research, teach one course during each year of residency, and participate in CRRES as well as host department activities and seminars. This two-year position begins on August 1, 2021 and ends on May 31, 2023, at a 10-month annual salary of $51,500. Postdoctoral fellows will also receive Indiana University health benefits and $3,000 each year in research support.
