Stanford University is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Health) to join the Immigration Policy Lab (IPL). IPL conducts research that employs field and natural experimental methods to quantify the impacts of immigration and integration policies throughout the world. IPL is a highly collaborative environment.
The postdoc will have the opportunity to co-author papers envisioned to appear in top journals that report on the results of the studies, as well as work with an array of affiliated faculty from top institutions. While the majority of the postdoc’s time will be dedicated to collaborative lab projects, there is also an opportunity to develop related independent health research. Examples of previous studies produced by the lab include projects on the intergenerational impact of DACA on the mental health of children (Science), public health insurance and immigrant families’ location decisions (JAMA Pediatrics), and the impact of prenatal care for children of undocumented women (Obstetrics and Gynecology).
The initial appointment will be for one year (with potential to renew for a second year). Start date is flexible, but no later than July 2022. Salary is standardized based on Stanford University guidelines. Benefits are provided.
Application deadline is on November 1st 2021.
