About the Future of Work Fellowship Program
The ILR Future of Work fellowship program supports postdoctoral researchers and doctoral students who work with our world-leading faculty on innovative and impactful research projects. Fellowships are awarded to faculty and units at ILR to allow them to hire the very best early-career researchers in their fields. Fellowships will support three or four postdoctoral researchers, as well as one doctoral student, each year for five years.
This fellowship program is designed to promote the benefits of strong collaboration between newer researchers and resident faculty members in studying impactful topics related to the future of work. Fellows and their faculty sponsors alike are enabled to address challenging research questions and break out of any stereotypes or default thinking around the future of work.
The Fellows benefit directly from engagement and mentoring from the ILR faculty members they work with, establishing a track record and path to future career success.
Faculty benefit from the work of the Fellows in advancing their research projects and opening up new opportunities and innovations through collaborations with these early career academics.
This is a five-year program, which will typically award 3 to 4 fellowships annually.
Professor Shannon Gleason and Professor Kate Griffith will work with Dr. Youbin Kang to examine the efficacy of innovative regulatory efforts to disentangle worker rights from restrictive immigration policy.
The future of work is hot. Literally. Unpredictable seasons, droughts, floods, warming temperatures, rising seas, and a host of other climatic factors are changing what work is, what it means, and what it does to the body. Besky will collabroate with Dr. Hadia Akhtar Khan to form the Agrarian Studio Lab.

Opportunities to Expand
The Future of Work Fellowship program has been made possible through a generous philanthropic gift. Funding research opportunities that balance focused research and potentially broad impact is a rare opportunity for many researchers – especially when a program like this can help underpin early careers while advancing the research of resident faculty.
