Multicultural Post-Doctoral Fellow, Department of Psychology
This is a 9 month appointment (August to May) with a 3 month contract extension during the summer. This appointment may be renewed for up to an additional two years.
UAA – with community campuses in Mat-Su, Kenai, Kodiak, and Prince William Sound – is located on the traditional homelands of the Dena’ina and Ahtna Athabascan, Alutiiq/Sugpiaq, and Eyak peoples. Furthermore, a rapidly increasing number of culturally diverse peoples from all over the world also call Anchorage home. To better reflect this diversity and better serve our communities, we seek a culturally and academically diverse postdoctoral fellow with an emerging or established interest in working with Indigenous/American Indian/Alaska Native communities or other marginalized groups.
