The UCSD Science Studies Program invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship as part of an NSF Research and Training Grant in “Proof, Persuasion and Policy.” We welcome candidates in any field represented in our program (history, philosophy, sociology, communication) whose research is relevant to the theme of the grant, particularly those whose work falls in one or more of the following areas: models and prediction, methodology of the social sciences, and disease and health. The fellow will participate in the Program’s weekly colloquium, teach or co-teach one course, help organize a workshop at the end of the year, and contribute to the intellectual life and activities of the program. Applicants must have completed Ph.D. before beginning their fellowship. The stipend is $40,200, plus health and other fringe benefits.
