Visiting Pre-Doctoral Fellowships


The purpose of QTM'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. QTM seeks pre-doctoral fellows whose research is quantitatively oriented, and whose intellectual contribution to Emory enriches the synthesis of both quantitative theory and social sciences.


Each fellow is provided with the following:

  • An office at QTM or the hosting partner department
  • Furnished housing or housing stipend
  • $10,000 ($2500/mo) stipend for travel and living expenses


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


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 2022-2023. QTM offers up to two pre-doctoral fellowships per semester.


Please submit all application materials via online application portal, which will open on November 5, 2022. Application packets must include the following items:

  • Current CV
  • Research statement
  • Writing sample
  • Two letters from faculty (to be sent directly by the letter writers, not the applicant):
    • A nomination letter from the intended faculty host at Emory University
    • A recommendation letter from the student’s advisor at his/her home institution 


QTM will start accepting applications for the 2022-2023 academic year November 5, 2022 and will continue to review applications until the fellowships are filled.
