About the application
The applications are evaluated by the Senior Fellows closest to the discipline. Additional Rice faculty may be called in to review applications when necessary. The Rice University Academy of Fellows recruits Junior Fellows who demonstrate potential in their future independent careers and would strengthen the scholarly enterprise at Rice. The primary emphasis of the research proposal should be to outline the postdoctoral research approach and likely outcomes, but some description of plans beyond the postdoc would be welcome. The application should also include a one-page document on why a position at Rice would propel the applicant's career and how their research fits at Rice.
