This involves creating courses in social innovation and entrepreneurship and other related activities. To be successful in our environment you must be able to teach courses by integrating out-of-the-classroom experiential learning, community engagement and design thinking.

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
