About Cornell University
Cornell University is a privately endowed research institute and a partner of the State University of New York. As the federal land-grant institution in New York State, the university has a responsibility—unique within the Ivy League—to make contributions in all fields of knowledge in a manner that prioritizes public engagement to help improve the quality of life in our state, the nation, the world.
Cornell University is seeking a colleague interested in investigating the transformative influence of community engagement and public service on individual’s life choices to join a vibrant community as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Communication/Human Development at Cornell University. Working closely with Dr. Richard Kiely in the Office of Engagement Initiatives and a steering committee, the postdoctoral associate will play a leading role in an exciting new initiative to understand the impacts of alumni participating in national service with City Year or community-engaged learning activities at Cornell University. This research project will help City Year, Cornell, and the broader youth development field understand how and under what circumstances would their alumni, who bring significant diversity in terms of backgrounds and experiences, show up as educated global citizens who practice respect and empathy, seek collaboration and cooperation, and embrace differences and diversity in all aspects of their lives. This position is full-time for two years with the potential for an additional year of support.
