The purpose of this solicitation is to support NIJ tribal data collections, expand the body of policy-relevant research that uses these data, and enhance or inform NIJ’s tribal crime and criminal justice portfolio.
NIJ will award up to two postdoctoral Native American Studies Research Fellowships to applicants who show the greatest potential for future achievement as scholars and researchers, and who can demonstrate experience relevant to the unique demands of working with tribal communities, including experience working in Indian Country and Alaska Native villages.
Fellows also are expected to perform a number of activities to include drafting reports suitable for publication by NIJ and summarizing the results and policy implications of their research and tenure at NIJ. Specific products will be negotiated with Fellows during the pre-award period. Fellows also may be asked to:
• Participate in developing research plans.
• Provide subject matter expertise in specific program areas.
• Conduct seminars in their area of expertise.
• Help develop informational materials for new or current research projects.
Fellows funded under this program will be based in Washington, D.C., and work in residency at NIJ for the duration of the award period. Fellows are expected to focus full-time on NIJ’s tribal program of research and avoid other commitments (either compensated or uncompensated) that may detract from this core business, unless approved in writing by the Director of NIJ.
Fellowship awards are conditional on the fellow’s successful completion and approval of all required U.S. Department of Justice profile and pre-screening paperwork, security reviews, and background investigations (i.e., credit and criminal) and the execution of a nondisclosure agreement (pertaining to access to non-public information that the Fellow may have during the course of their fellowship).
