Postdoctoral fellowships – Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality

Two Postdoctoral Scholar Positions
Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality
Graduate Center (CUNY), New York

The Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality is seeking applicants for a fifth cohort of postdoctoral scholars. The Stone Center is an official research center within the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
The Stone Center’s postdoctoral program enables scholars with a recent Ph.D. to spend two years producing empirical research on topics related to inequality and/or mobility in the United States, internationally, or both.

This year’s call requests applications for two different positions. The first is for applicants whose work concerns wealth inequality, with a focus on, e.g., distributions of wealth, wealth inequality, and wealth concentration; intergroup wealth disparities (e.g., by gender, race, ethnicity, migration status); determinants (including public policies) and consequences of wealth accumulation; and estate, inheritance, and gift taxation. For the second position, priority will be given to candidates whose work focuses on inequality in the U.S. or other labor markets, especially disparities by gender, race, and/or ethnicity or migration status, and ideally within an intersectional framework. Qualified applicants may apply to both positions.

CUNY encourages people with disabilities, minorities, veterans, and women to apply.
