Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The Inequality in America Initiative seeks applications from recent doctoral degree recipients interested in joining a multidisciplinary network of Harvard researchers working to address the manifold challenges of inequality. This program is intended to seed new research directions, facilitate collaboration across disciplines, and develop new leaders in the study of inequality who can publish at the highest level, reach the widest audience, and impact policy.

We expect to appoint four fellows, with two positions dedicated to scholarship focused specifically on racial and ethnic inequality.

Over fifty Harvard faculty are affiliated with the initiative, participating in one or more of five major research clusters:

-America Inequality, Globally

-Governance, Citizenship, and Social Justice

-Mobility and Migration

-Science, Technology, Education, and Health

-Work, Family, and Opportunity.

The fellowship is a two-year postdoctoral training program. The award includes $73,500/year plus fringe; office space; a $17,500 research account; up to $3K (incl. taxes) for relocation; and up to $3K toward a manuscript workshop.
