The postdoctoral fellow will be provided with a salary and a small personal research budget, and will join in the ongoing research and service of the IGI. This is a three-year position assuming academic achievement and service at a level at or above expectations, with annual formal reviews. 

One core aspect of this Postdoctoral Fellow’s role will be to analyze and serve as an author/coauthor on publications coming from existing data.

Specifically, ongoing research projects will focus on gender-related vulnerabilities and sources of resiliency, as well as support for diversity in global business contexts. A proportion of the postdoc’s time will also be dedicated to publishing his/her ongoing research projects.
