Postdoctoral Scholar Positions: Call for Applications


Visiting/Guest Scholars Program

IPE offers a limited number of Visiting/Guest Scholar positions each academic year in order to support advanced research and writing on any aspect of the mission of the IPE.

Visiting/Guest scholars must have their own extramural funding, but are provided with shared office space, as well as full access to all UCSD academic, institutional, and recreational resources. They benefit from interaction in a supportive, interdisciplinary community of scholars and have an opportunity to present their research.

Visiting/Guest scholars are not required to have a UC affiliation.

International Visiting/Guest Scholars will be responsible for their J-1 visa fees, which are approximately $800 for processing costs and SEVIS and visa fees, but may be higher depending on one’s country of origin.
