Vanderbilt University’s Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions (CSDI) seeks up to three Postdoctoral Scholars to conduct research on political institutions, opinion or behavior during the 2022-2023 academic year. For one of the three available positions we particularly encourage applicants who have experience or interest in working on CSDI-affiliated faculty projects related to executive unilateralism, administrative law, and executive-judicial relations, particularly at the US state-level. For the other two positions we are interested in scholars who are interested in working alongside the faculty and research centers at Vanderbilt.

Qualifications Applications are welcome from scholars who have received or will receive their doctoral degrees between September 1, 2019, and August 1, 2022, for year-long appointments beginning September 1, 2022. There is no teaching requirement associated with these positions, but Postdoctoral Scholars will be expected to spend up to 20 hours per week contributing to the Center’s ongoing research projects. Successful candidates will receive competitive salary, health care benefits, office space, computing resources, and a research fund.

Application Instructions Candidates should submit a vita and a cover letter describing your research project, what you hope to accomplish while at CSDI, and why spending time at Vanderbilt would provide a useful setting for that research. A graduate school transcript, a writing sample, and letters of reference are also required. Applicants should submit materials electronically at http://apply.interfolio.com/99732. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but priority will be given to those received before January 21, 2022.
