Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government and Public Policy and the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis
The Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and Public Policy at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship (with possible renewal for one additional year), for a scholar with advanced quantitative methods training and interest in American politics. We are looking for an outstanding and curious scholar who has a Ph.D. in one of the social sciences, computer science, or a related discipline. Our ideal candidate has strong skills in R and Python and experience working with relational databases. Most importantly, we are looking for someone who is excited to collaborate as part of a team.
The position begins July 1, 2020. The fellow will work under the supervision of Professor Andrew Reeves along with Profs. Betsy Sinclair and Michael Olson.
Fellows are expected to be in residence during the fellowship period and to participate in the intellectual life of the Department of Political Science along with the other units of Washington University relevant to the Fellow’s research interests. Fellows will work together in a collaborative setting with a team of faculty members on research projects toward the production of jointly published scholarly research. The fellow will mostly be working on collaborative projects with the supervising faculty, but will also have time for his or her own projects. There are no teaching or service obligations.
