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.

The annual stipend for each QSS fellow is $50,000. The fellowship can be extended through the 2019-20 academic year with the approval of the QSS Chair. Each fellow will receive a one-time $5,000 account for equipment, travel, and research materials. There may also be an opportunity to teach a one-quarter course with an extra stipend with the approval of the QSS chair.
