The Postdoctoral Fellow will have the unique opportunity to assist in the management and dissemination of a grant-funded project examining the longitudinal effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Asian American parents and their children.

The fellowship includes a $65,000 annual salary, $5,000 for research and professional development, and other benefits afforded to full-time professional employees (e.g. health insurance; see here for more details). Appointment is for a two-year period, starting on 07/01/2021 (or later), with required review after the first year.
