Post-doctoral Fellowship

The Digital Civil Society Lab at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS) is pleased to announce a new post-doctoral fellowship program.

About the Digital Civil Society Lab

The Digital Civil Society Lab believes in an independent civil society that thrives in the digital age through the safe, ethical and effective use of private digital resources for public benefit. The Lab is an initiative of the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS).

The rapid adoption of digital tools for social and political action has resulted in a complicated new sphere we refer to as “digital civil society.” This sphere includes all the ways people and organizations voluntarily use private resources for public benefit in a digital age. We see evidence of digital civil society at the intersection of several domains: nonprofits, associations, and philanthropy; market solutions for social good; political action; and digital data and infrastructure.

These once-distinct spheres now overlap in ways that require the adoption of a new framework rooted in the unique characteristics of digital resources and the unique values of civil society..

The Lab is led by Lucy Bernholz, senior research scholar at Stanford PACS, and Rob Reich, professor of Political Science and faculty co-director of Stanford PACS.

About the fellowship

We seek to appoint promising post-doctoral scholars who are actively engaged in research on topics related to priority research areas, which include:

  • The key dimensions of digital infrastructure and data and how they influence the role of independent civil society in democracies.
  • Understanding, creating, and expanding access to software, hardware and digital practices that align with the values of civil society in democracies.
  • The nature of digital data donations and/or the governance mechanisms, enterprise forms, or legal constructs that such donations call for.
  • The role of digital infrastructure, data, and connectivity and their influence on relationships between governments, markets, and civil society.

We encourage applications from candidates representing a broad range of disciplines including the social sciences, humanities, law, computer science and engineering.

Each fellow will be affiliated with the Digital Civil Society Lab and potentially a department or school at Stanford University. The postdoctoral fellowship provides scholars with the opportunity to pursue original research related to emerging issues in digital civil society (whether at the national or global level).

The annual fellowship stipend is $60,000, plus the standard benefits that postdoctoral fellows at Stanford University receive, including health insurance and travel funds. The fellowship program falls under U.S. Immigration J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa activities. The start date of the fellowship will be September 2017, unless otherwise agreed.

How to apply
Application materials should be submitted to the Digital Civil Society Lab via email to Lseaman@stanford.edu using the subject line “DCSL Post-Doctoral Fellowship 2017.” The deadline for applications is January 13, 2017. Please include the following items and information in your application:

  • Cover letter: detailing the reasons for the applicant’s interest in the fellowship
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Fellowship proposal: detailing the research that the fellow would undertake while at Stanford (three page limit, single spaced)
  • Writing sample: consisting of either a dissertation chapter or a recent published paper. There are no specific page length or formatting requirements for this sample
  • Graduate Transcript: with proof that applicants have completed all the requirements for the PhD, or a letter from their PhD advisor stating when they will do so
  • Two Letters of Recommendation

Please disclose if you have additional funding arrangements.

To assume a Post-Doctoral Fellowship, you must have a PhD in hand by July 1, 2017. We cannot consider applications from scholars who earned a PhD earlier than May 1, 2015.

Questions about the program, application process or requirements should be directed to Laura Seaman, Program Manager of the Digital Civil Society Lab, at Lseaman@stanford.edu.

About University of Massachusetts Amherst

The University of Massachusetts Amherst, the flagship campus of the UMass system, is home to over 22,000 undergraduate and 6,300 graduate students from all 50 states and nearly 100 countries. It boasts a world-class faculty committed to performance and growth in scholarship, opportunity, diversity and inclusion. It is a research-intensive, land-grant institution with growing research expenditures currently totaling more than $195 million annually. 


Job Description:

The University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for the position of inaugural Director of the new School of Public Policy (SPP) at the University's flagship campus. We seek an outstanding and active scholar committed to the study of public problems and their resolution. The appointment will be made at the rank of Full Professor or advanced Associate Professor. Building on the success of the University's Center for Public Policy and Administration, the founding director will help to lead a faculty hiring strategy, elevate the visibility of SPP as a national and international hub for policy debates, and create multi-disciplinary programs that prepare students for lifelong engagement with public issues.  The Director will work with faculty and other campus leaders to raise the profile of policy-relevant research on and beyond campus, build partnerships with other campus units that create joint opportunities for policy-related research and teaching, support faculty to increase public engagement with their research, and engage in fundraising working with development staff. The Director, who will report to the Dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS), will work with faculty to lead efforts to establish new opportunities for undergraduates in public policy and administration and expand existing graduate programs, working in collaboration with departments in the social sciences, natural sciences, public health, engineering, information and computer science and a variety of other fields. The SPP community is interested in problems connected to inequality and has a passion for social change and engaging policy problems at all levels, locally through internationally. The new Director will work collaboratively to develop innovative programs on our main campus in Amherst, with possible new operations in Massachusetts (Boston and Springfield) and Washington, DC where students will gain valuable experience in international, national, state, regional and local governance.


Requirements:

Candidates for Director must have a doctoral degree or equivalent and an exceptional record of research, teaching, and service sufficient to merit appointment as a tenured (full or associate) professor in one of the academic departments of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated commitment to research and to undergraduate and graduate education; a vision for how a new policy school will support the campus's strategic planning goals; a commitment to increase the diversity of the faculty, student body and curriculum; an ability to serve as a vigorous champion for public policy research and teaching; and an ability to work effectively across boundaries with faculty members, students, staff, administrators, and external constituencies. 


Additional Information:

The university is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body.  The University of Massachusetts Amherst is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from these and other protected group members.  Because broad diversity is essential to an inclusive climate and critical to the University's goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we will holistically assess the many qualifications of each applicant and favorably consider an individual's record working with students and colleagues with broadly diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds in educational, research or other work activities. We will also favorably consider experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to an academic degree and career.


Application Instructions:

The appointment will be effective on or about September 1, 2017. Interested candidates should apply through Interview Exchange.
