Postdoctoral fellowship opportunity

Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

The Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University offers a two-year postdoctoral fellowship that focuses on the Institute’s current theme, “Beyond the Stalled Revolution: Reinvigorating Gender Equality in the Twenty-first Century.” Recent Ph.D.’s in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences whose research centers feminist, women’s or gender studies are eligible. We encourage scholars with a strong interest in interdisciplinary methods to apply. While in residence at the Institute, Postdoctoral Scholars are expected to participate in Clayman Institute activities throughout the academic year in addition to pursuing their own research.  Our application will be available to access October 1, 2017 through January 11, 2018.

Clayman Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Application

 Application Opens – Oct 1, 2017

Application Deadline – January 11, 2018 midnight PST

For questions about the postdoctoral fellowship application, please see the Application Details.

Postdoctoral Scholars will participate in our community of Stanford Faculty Research Fellows, Faculty Affiliates, and Graduate Dissertation Fellows through their own research and contributions to our goal of reinvigorating gender equality. Postdoctoral fellow responsibilities will include contributing to the Clayman Gender News service, working with Graduate Dissertation Fellows, participating in our Graduate Voice and Influence Program, and attending our regularly scheduled faculty luncheon discussions.

The Postdoctoral Scholars will play a critical role in our Gender News service, which is the public outreach component of the Clayman Institute and our affiliated scholars. To increase the impact of innovative work on gender equality, the Gender News service publishes articles on gender research for academic and general audiences. Postdoctoral Scholars will write articles for Gender News that include summaries of the latest peer-reviewed gender research, interviews with Stanford Faculty Research Fellows and Faculty Affiliates, and reviews of relevant academic conferences. In addition, our postdoctoral scholars will produce white papers that translate interdisciplinary gender research for a wider audience.

Postdoctoral Scholars will receive a stipend, annual research fund and standard benefits, and are expected to be in residence for the fellowship.  The fellowship begins no later than the start of Autumn quarter in October 2018 and continues through the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years.

2018 GDO PDW Call for Proposals


PDW Chair: Eden King, Rice University (

2018 GDO Division Professional Development Workshops: Call for Proposals

The Gender and Diversity in Organizations (GDO) Division invites proposals for the pre-conference professional development workshops (PDW) to be held at the 2018 Academy of Management meeting in Chicago, Illinois. PDW sessions will begin at 8:00AM on Friday, August 10th and conclude on Saturday, August 11th at 8:00PM.

We encourage the submission of PDWs that are interactive and crafted to enhance our members’ knowledge and skills with respect to research, teaching, and practice in the GDO domain. We welcome PDWs that expand our thinking, fostering the generation and contemplation of new possibilities. Submitters should prepare their proposals with reference to the GDO mission:

To generate and disseminate knowledge about gender and diversity within and outside of organizations, embrace diverse perspectives in organizational research and education, and to support social justice through the inclusion of marginalized voices in members’ research and practice.”

The theme of this year’s Academy of Management meeting is “Improving Lives.” We are excited to showcase and celebrate work that addresses the role that organizations can play in enhancing health and well-being in society. The mission of the GDO Division is very much aligned with this theme and there are innumerable ways through which scholarship, teaching, and practice of diversity and inclusion can contribute to the lives of individuals in society. We encourage you to develop PDWs that exemplify or spark such ideals.

Keep in mind that, through our PDW program, we are seeking to provide experiences that best serve the personal and professional needs of our members. Our desire is for PDWs that prompt deep engagement, energize participants and culminate in plans for action, not merely discussions. In this vein, we encourage contributors to consider their PDW submissions from an action perspective and we are more than happy to provide feedback regarding ideas. 

The division is committed to extending our reach – socially, culturally, geographically and across different roles. In the spirit of inclusivity, we welcome proposals designed to facilitate connections and collaborations between our members around the globe. The GDO division solicits PDWs of any form including teaching or publishing workshops, tutorials, debates, roundtable discussions, panels, case studies, and invited speakers; but don’t be constrained by this list. New forms for PDWs are sought too. PDWs provide an opportunity to experiment with new approaches that do not fit within the confines of the regular program, so proposers are encouraged to be innovative in workshop design.

Sessions can include academics, practitioners and representatives from public- and private-sector entities as well as not-for-profits. While submitters have broad discretion in designing proposals, we prefer submissions that are interactive and innovative in nature. Submissions with an interdisciplinary focus are especially welcomed.

GDO pre-conference programming is allotted approximately 22 hours of access to conference facilities and we want to make the most of this time. We invite proposals that can work in more than one of the pre-conference program areas (PDWs, PhD consortium, junior faculty consortium) as these will help to stretch our resources further, while still honoring the three areas’ distinctive goals and constituencies. For example, a PDW that engages with issues relevant to the junior faculty consortium while also being designed to appeal to and serve the professional development needs of participants from the broader membership. Cross divisional proposals, which involve two or more divisions and/or interest groups, are strongly desired.

PDW proposals must be submitted through the Academy of Management’s electronic submission system.

The submission system will be open on November 28, 2017 and the deadline for submission is January 9, 2018 at 5PM Eastern Time (NY time) but earlier submissions are encouraged. If you have questions or would like to discuss a potential workshop idea, please contact the GDO Division’s PDW Chair, Eden King ( To ensure sufficient time to develop your proposal, please forward your general inquiries prior to December 10, 2017.
