Pre-doctoral Fellowships

PURPOSE: The purpose of QuanTM's pre-doctoral fellowship is to give doctoral candidates the opportunity to facilitate research during their residence at Emory, as well as expand or complete their dissertations, give lectures, and lead workshops and seminars. The Institute seeks pre-doctoral fellows whose research is quantitatively oriented, and whose intellectual contribution to Emory enriches the synthesis of quantitative theory and social sciences our department has fostered. 

BENEFITS: Each fellow is provided with a private office at the Institute or hosting department, free furnished housing, and a $10,000 stipend for travel and living expenses. Please note, due to space constraints, office space at QuanTM is not guaranteed.

DURATION: Pre-doctoral fellows are invited to be in residence for one semester.

ELIGIBILITY: Pre-doctoral candidates from an institution outside of Emory are eligible to apply. Candidates may apply directly, though each candidate must be nominated by an Emory department or program prior to submitting an application. Applicants must also have achieved candidacy, though preference will be given to applicants who will not be on the job market in 2017-2018. QuanTM offers up to two pre-doctoral fellowships per semester.

APPLICATION: Application packets must include a CV, a research statement, a writing sample, a nomination letter from the intended faculty host at Emory University, and a nomination letter from the student’s advisor at his/her home institution. The letter of recommendation and the nomination letter must be sent by the writer of the letter. 

DEADLINE: QuanTM will start accepting applications for the 2017-2018 academic year in October 2016 and will continue to review applications until the fellowships are filled. 

MORE INFO: Please submit all application materials to IQTM@emory.edu and include “Pre-doctoral Fellowships” in the subject title along with your full name. Questions and concerns may also be directed to IQTM@emory.edu
