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 2018-2019 academic year. Fellows in the program will work closely with other fellows and senior researchers of APPC on scholarship designed to understand the ways in which the norms of science are communicated, the ways in which communication can address misunderstandings about the scientific process and its findings, and ways in which one can activate science curiosity.

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 letter of nomination from a dissertation adviser as well as a curriculum vitae, references, 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 July 1, 2018. 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. Renewal for a second year is contingent upon performance and budgetary considerations.

We are seeking fellows who apply a variety of disciplinary and methodological approaches, and have completed a Ph.D. within the last five years.

Please send the letter of interest, CV, and names of two references to Lena Buford at lena.buford@appc.upenn.edu. The letter of nomination should be sent to the same email address by the dissertation adviser.

Deadline for submission is December 15, 2017. Earlier submission is encouraged.
