We are committed to ensuring an inclusive environment where diverse voices and perspectives are active and welcome. We encourage applicants who bring diverse perspectives to our community.
We seek PhD students to work on Gund research themes, especially the connections among them. Students will receive up to four years of support at $32,000 per year, plus tuition.
Students are eligible for health insurance, and conference and research funds.
