Following the successful pilot of an interdisciplinary course combining Asian American studies with scientific fields of inquiry, Yale invites applicants for a renewable one-year interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship beginning in Fall 2023 to promote teaching and research at the intersection of Asian American studies and STEM fields.
