The Marilyn J. Gittell Visiting Professorship/ Post-doctoral Fellowship, established in honor of the late Political Science Professor at the CUNY Graduate Center, is for a social science Ph.D. working on areas that concerned Marilyn Gittell, especially research focused on cities, urban politics, public policy, democratic and civic engagement, social movements, citizenship and governance, and community practices, both domestically and abroad. This is a 1-year fellowship, with the potential for one 1-year renewal.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in hand by August 2016, in Anthropology, History, Political Science, Sociology, Urban Studies, or a related field.
The goal of the Gittell postdoctoral fellowship program is to prepare researchers committed to understanding and addressing critical issues in community-engaged research, especially in urban settings. The Visiting Professor will be expected to help administer seminars and activities sponsored by the Marilyn J. Gittell Chair in Urban Studies.
The search committee will begin reviewing applications on January 15th, 2016.
