Post Doctoral Program

2006-2007 Competition
Deadline: November 1, 2006

The Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at the University of California, 
San Diego invites applications for two postdoctoral fellowships (open 
to applicants from any discipline) for research related to Mexico or 
U.S.-Mexican relations. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to be in 
residence for a period of two academic years and to teach an average of 
one class per year in an academic unit of UCSD. Stipends range from 
$3000-$5000 per month (plus benefits, on a 12-month basis) commensurate 
with experience and academic rank. Applicants must plan to complete the 
PhD by August 2006.

Current funding sources are restricted to citizens of Mexico or recent 
graduates with advanced degrees from any campus of the University of 
California system. We do not expect to be able to fund postdoctoral 
fellows from outside these two groups during the 2006-2007 academic 
year. The Center currently has two in-house projects with funds 
earmarked for research fellowships: rural financial markets and rural 
development; and public health and HIV/AIDS policy in Mexico. 
Applications are not, of course, restricted to these topics.

Candidates not selected for the Post Doc Program will automatically be 
considered for the Visiting Fellows Program, unless otherwise 
designated on the application form.

The Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies is an organized research unit of 
UCSD dedicated to research on Mexico and U.S.-Mexican relations. The 
Center’s programs include an active visiting scholars program, an 
annual Summer Seminar in U.S. Studies, research projects related to 
policy and policymaking in Mexico, and a series of conferences and 
workshops. For additional information, visit the Center’s Web site.

Interested candidates should visit the Center’s Web site 
(www.usmex.ucsd.edu) for application instructions and forms.

PLEASE NOTE: Applications will be accepted only via the Center’s online 
application site.

The deadline for receipt of applications is November 1, 2005.
