The National Institute of Justice (NIJ), through the U.S. Department of Justice, is accepting applications for their Postdoctoral Fellowship on Violence Against Women.
The goals of the Violence Against Women program of research are to improve knowledge and understanding of teen dating violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, and sexual assault issues.
NIJ strives to provide objective and independent knowledge and validated tools to reduce violence against women and girls and promote justice for victims. The objectives of this solicitation are to support the development of promising new scholars in violence against women research and to fund high-quality research projects in the areas of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, stalking, and/or teen dating violence.
Postdoctoral fellows funded under this solicitation are expected to publish one or more peer-reviewed scientific journal articles, but may include law review journals, academic press books or book chapters.
A formal mentor for the fellow is required. As such, letters of support from a senior academic mentor/advisor are required and the applicant is encouraged to include a percentage of senior academic mentor/advisor time in the budget (or consultant fees if mentor/advisor is at a different institution from the sponsoring institution).
