The Greater Good Science Center announced its Gratitude Postdoctoral Fellowship program, a continuation of its six year Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude initiative supported by the John Templeton Foundation. Three fellowships, each for two years of postdoctoral support at published NIH salary levels plus up to $10,000 in research costs per year will be awarded to candidates working in tandem with a chosen faculty gratitude researcher affiliated with this initiative.
The Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude Postdoctoral Fellowship program extends what was started with 14 faculty research projects and 15 dissertation research awards funded nationwide from 2012 to 2014. To scale up and magnify the impact of the studies supported by the Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude initiative, Gratitude Postdoctoral fellows will work closely with an affiliated faculty gratitude researcher. With this expert mentorship, Gratitude postdoctoral Fellows will have the extraordinary opportunity to hit the ground running with teams that have already generated cutting-edge, game-changing data to inform and kickstart a very productive two years of research.
Gratitude Postdoctoral Fellows will be offered world-class media and communications training from the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley as our newest ambassadors of the Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude initiative.
Those interested in the GGSC Gratitude Postdoctoral Fellowship program are encouraged to familiarize themselves with recent scholarship on gratitude. The letter of intent deadline is March 2, 2015. Find more information the Greater Good Science Center website.
