Subject:  2005-2006 Rockefeller Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Rockefeller Center supports one post-doctoral fellow annually.  I
write to invite social science departments, interdisciplinary programs,
and research groups within the Rockefeller Center to submit a candidate
for consideration for the Rockefeller Post-Doctoral Fellow 

for the academic year 2005-2006. The term of appointment is September 1,
2005, through  June 30, 2006.  The total salary is $34,000 and comes
with full benefits.  The host department/program provides office space
and access to office equipment and covers administrative costs during
the fellow's tenure. 

Departments/programs/Center-affiliated research groups interested in
participating in this program should solicit applications through their
professional networks and publications, making clear to potential
candidates that the department/program/Center-affiliated group will be
submitting its top candidate to a larger pool of applicants for
consideration.  Should you need a sample advertisement, please contact
Associate Director Roxanne Waldner.

The fellowship is a nine-month commitment, with the possibility of a
second nine-month renewal at the discretion of the Center's director.
The post-doc must have research interests in some aspect of public
policy and be eligible to teach a course for the Public Policy Minor
that may also be cross-listed in the department/program.  The fellow
will have a joint appointment in the department/program and the Center.
Other expectations of post-doctoral fellows include the presentation of
their research at a Rockefeller Faculty Seminar and participation in
Center-sponsored events and departmental colloquia as appropriate.  In
addition, fellows are expected to acknowledge Rockefeller Center
sponsorship in any publications resulting from research they undertake
while in residence at the College. 

Nominations can be sent to Roxanne.Waldner at Dartmouth.Edu.  E-mail should
include the name and affiliation of the candidate, a copy of his/her
c.v., and a brief statement of no more than one page describing the
fellow's likely contribution to the scholarly Community at Dartmouth.
For example, the fellow may offer a research perspective not currently
represented among the department's faculty or may complement existing
research interests.  

The application deadline is Monday, February 28, 2005.  The Center's
Faculty Council ad hoc Committee of Grants and Awards will make final
selection by Monday, March 21, 2005.  I look forward to the selection of
the next Rockefeller Post-Doctoral Fellow and encourage your
participation in the application process.
