The Supporting Equity-Focused, Interdisciplinary, and Responsive Research in Early Childhood Care and Education:Equity in Early Education (E3) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (ECCE), hosted at Stanford University, aims to hire four fellows over the course of four waves. These fellows will receive 2-years of training and mentoring to prepare them to conduct research that corresponds to two IES research topic areas (Early Learning Programs and Policies and Improving Education Systems) and three IES methodological focus areas (measurement, exploration, and development and innovation).
Fellows will further develop and refine their knowledge of and skills in these areas by collaborating on their mentors' projects as well as leading independent research projects. During their 2-year positions, fellows will gain expertise in child development, using and linking a variety of administrative and restricted-access datasets, and conducting research in partnership with non-researcher stakeholders. They will learn how to conduct equity-oriented research using a variety of methods, including experimental, quasi-experimental, and qualitative approaches. Additional training experiences include opportunities to audit courses, attend seminars, participate in activities and trainings led by the Center for Comparative Studies on Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE, https://ccsre.stanford.edu/). Fellows will also prepare, present, and publish their own scholarly work as well as participate in other professional activities such as reviewing articles, grant-writing, and job searches.
