Fellowship in Sociology, State Policy, Migration & Gender – Utah State university

The Sociology Program at Utah State University seeks applicants for a Presidential Doctoral Research Fellow with research interests in state policy, migration and gender. The Presidential Fellow will receive an annual stipend of $20,000 for four years. Qualified applicants will have an MS in sociology or a related field, GRE scores above the 70th percentile and a cumulative GPA above 3.5. The Presidential Fellow will work closely with sociology faculty on one of several on-going research projects related to policy, migration and gender. To learn more about these projects, go to http://sociology.usu.edu/presidentialfellow.aspx.

Applicants should complete an application and provide a letter of intent outlining one’s research interests, curriculum vitae, a writing sample, official transcripts and GRE scores and three letters of reference. To apply for the position go to http://sociology.usu.edu/grad summary.aspx. We will begin reviewing applicants on February 1, 2013 and will continue until a qualified candidate has been selected. The Sociology Program is committed to excellence through diversity, and we strongly encourage applications from women, persons of color, ethnic minorities, international students, veterans and persons with disabilities.

Utah State University is located in Logan, Utah, a small city of almost 50,000 people nestled in the Wasatch mountain range. Utah is an important new immigration destination with one of the fastest-growing Hispanic populations in the country. Logan is also an ideal location from which to pursue diverse outdoor recreation opportunities – either in the canyons and mountains that surround Logan or in the many national parks located in nearby mountains and in Utah’s famous red rock desert country.
