Dear Colleagues:

The School of Information Sciences' (iSchool) Postdoctoral Research Associate program is currently accepting applications for its 2023 cohort. With this program, the iSchool @ Illinois intends to provide mentoring and community support to prepare candidates for tenure-stream assistant professor or other permanent appointments inside and outside of academia. Each postdoc is assigned to a faculty mentor, who will provide individual guidance and support.

Initial applications must include a CV, statement of interest, and individual development plan. Mentoring plans are also required and will be developed in collaboration with a potential faculty mentor, either before or during the application process.

More details, including links to the application form, applicant requirements, stipend information, and contact information for questions, can be found at our website:

Please share this opportunity with your colleagues and PhD students.
