A cornerstone of RCC mission at Harvard is the attraction and support to young talent. Due to the traditional structure of academic careers, Junior Scholars who have just received their doctorate usually find it more difficult to gain access to the most prestigious universities, either for reasons related to curriculum development or lack of funding. Along with this, another problem common to the Junior Scholars is the possibility of making internationalization compatible with the academic career in the universities of their preference. This call aims to tackle the above mentioned activities.
The present program is an extraordinary opportunity that provides funding for carrying out research at Harvard University. These grants are addressed to recently minted scholars to deepen their expertise, to acquire new skills, to work with additional resources and to make connections with others in their field, as well as promoting the connection between their home universities and Harvard University at large.
Within the scope of its mission RCC provides grant funding for Postdoctoral Research Fellows with extraordinary academic record under the framework of the Distinguished Junior Scholars program. This program is directed to candidates who have recently received their PhD with honors to support the development of a research project at any of the Departments, Centers or Schools at Harvard University in the fields of sciences, humanities, law, medicine, public health, political science, economy, sociology, education, engineering, architecture, or any other field of study available at Harvard University.
Applicants must submit the online application and all required admission materials that are specified in the following Call.
