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 https://apply.interfolio.com/72285. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but priority will be given to those received before January 17, 2020.
