The School of Labor and Employment Relations at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for the position of Post-Doctoral Scholar with the Center for Global Workers’ Rights. This is a twelve-month position that begins on August 15, 2018. The Center for Global Workers’ Rights was established in the fall of 2012 with the goal of promoting scholarly research and scholar-practitioner exchanges on issues related to workers’ rights. It has a broad focus that includes, but is not limited to, sweatshops, precarious work, labor standards, international labor and employment law, worker organizing, and workers’ rights in global supply chains. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline, or a J.D., earned in the last five years, as well as evidence of an emerging research program relevant to the Center’s interests. Scholars will receive salary, benefits, and a research/travel fund to support their work. Scholars will be expected to mentor students on their summer capstone project and to teach one course. This may include teaching for the School’s Labor and Global Workers’ Right MPS program, which is part of the Global Labour University network (http://www.global-labour-university.org/).
