The fellowship is open to high-quality researchers who study the social, political, economic, or managerial aspects of organizations and their environments. The postdoctoral fellow allows one to set and pursue a research program according to his or her liking. There are no teaching requirements. This position is a terrific opportunity to deepen one’s research interests and profile.
The fellow will be affiliated with a disciplinary department or school at Stanford University, and with SCANCOR. The postdoctoral fellowship provides Nordic scholars with the opportunity to learn new topics and skills, and work closely with a Stanford faculty member, while participating in SCANCOR activities. Although there will be
ample time for the fellow to pursue their current lines of scholarship, the expectation is that they will also collaborate with Stanford scholars and pursue research in tandem with their faculty sponsors.
The fellow will act as a bridge between the Nordic countries and Stanford University, and deepen the skills that are necessary for an international academic career, focusing on building methodological knowledge and writing successfully for leading scientific journals.
Among the various Stanford faculty who may be potential sponsors of a postdoctoral fellow are:
- Patricia Bromley, Dan McFarland, Woody Powell, Chiqui Ramirez, and Mitchell Stevens at the School of Education;
- Shelley Correll, and Robb Willer in the Department of Sociology;
- Riita Katila and Pamela Hinds in the Department of Management Science and Engineering;
- Amir Goldberg and Jesper Sørensen at the Graduate School of Business
- Fred Turner in Communication.
- Other faculty are potentially available to serve in this capacity.
The annual fellowship salary is $68,238, plus the standard benefits that postdoctoral fellows at Stanford University receive. The fellowship program falls under U.S. Immigration J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa activities.
