Postdoctoral Instructors

HSS postdoctoral instructors pursue research as independent scholars while also collaborating with division faculty and teaching undergraduate courses in the humanities and social sciences. These visiting scholars are an important addition to Caltech, as they help to diversify course offerings and enliven the research environment, bringing new topics to examine and new approaches to share with the community.

Postdoctoral Scholars

HSS welcomes a select group of postdoctoral scholars who are interested in pursuing a program of research and training under the direction of a specific humanities or social sciences faculty member, lab, or research center. Postdoctoral scholars are carefully selected by the faculty members with whom they will work, fulfilling a critical role in the division's—and Caltech's—overall success.
