Postdoctoral Fellowship

QSS Postdoctoral Fellowship specifically to work on Nyhan Research

The Program in Quantitative Social Science (QSS) seeks a postdoctoral research fellow for the 2018-2019 academic year. The fellow will work with Professor of Government Brendan Nyhan and be housed in and affiliated with QSS, an interdisciplinary program that integrates modern statistical, computational, and mathematical tools with social science questions. Applicants should have a proven record of research success; excellent writing and organizational skills; and expertise in experimental design, applied statistics, and/or computational social science.

The QSS fellow will work with Nyhan on new and ongoing projects in areas including studies of misperceptions and fact-checking in politics and health. Project work will be determined in consultation with the fellow based on their skills and interests. In addition, the fellow will conduct their own research with mentoring from Nyhan and other faculty associated with QSS and participate in the intellectual life of QSS by working with QSS faculty and honors students on ongoing research, attending seminars and workshops, and presenting research results.

QSS Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Program in Quantitative Social Science (QSS) at Dartmouth College is pleased to announce that it is searching for up to three postdoctoral fellows for the 2018-19 academic year. QSS is an interdisciplinary program that integrates modern statistical, computational, and mathematical tools with social science questions. Each fellow should be highly motivated, collegial, and able to work independently on a research agenda that is grounded in quantitative social science.

During the 2018-19 academic year, QSS fellows will participate in the intellectual life of the program by interacting with each other, with QSS faculty, and with undergraduate students pursuing a minor or major in QSS.  Fellows will also attend seminars and workshops and are expected to present their own research on a regular basis.  There are many postdoctoral fellows at Dartmouth College, and QSS fellows will be part of a large community on campus.
