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) of the University of Pennsylvania’s postdoctoral fellowship program in the Science of Science Communication (SSC) is accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year. Fellows in the program will work closely with other fellows and senior researchers of APPC on scholarship designed to understand how social and communication factors influence people’s beliefs in science. Researchers with basic interests (e.g., source credibility, communication processes, and either belief formation) and applied interests (e.g., climate change, vaccines, and COVID-19) are encouraged to apply.
More information about APPC and its Science of Science Communication research can be found at: http://www.annenbergpublicpolicycenter.org/science-communication/
Applicants should submit a cover letter as well as a curriculum vitae, a letter of reference from the dissertation advisor, and a description of the applicant’s scholarly interests. First-year fellows will receive a stipend of $65,000 and serve in a 12-month appointment, beginning either July 1, 2021 or January 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 (subject to any applicable university Covid-19 travel restrictions). Renewal for a second year is contingent upon performance and budgetary considerations.
Please send the letter of interest, CV, and names of two references to firstname.lastname@example.org. The letter of reference should be sent to the same email address by the dissertation adviser.
Deadline for submission is June 15 to begin in the Fall 2021 and October 1 to begin in the Spring of 2022. Earlier submission is encouraged and decisions will be made on a rolling basis.
