The Institute for Women’s Policy Research invites women from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups who are interested in the study of policy issues affecting women to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship.

IWPR conducts and communicates research to inspire public dialogue, shape policy, and improve the lives and opportunities of women of diverse backgrounds, circumstances, and experiences.  This two-year fellowship provides the opportunity to contribute to IWPR research projects that inform policies affecting women and their families. The fellow will work in IWPR’s Washington, DC, office with an experienced, multi-disciplinary team of PhD-level researchers and research associates on a variety of topics related to employment, education, income security, work and family, health and safety, and women and girls of color.
