The Interdisciplinary Research Institute for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE) is designed to support research and creative work dedicated to issues of (in)equality, social justice, and inclusivity. Its mission is to (1) facilitate the interdisciplinary teaching and learning, collaboration, research, scholarship, and creative works that seek to promote equality in historically underrepresented communities; and (2) develop, support, and implement academic programs and activities that seek to promote the advancement of historically underrepresented populations in the Academy.
The IRISE postdoctoral fellowship is the signature program to achieve these goals. Under this initiative, departments, programs, and units on campus have the opportunity to engage and mentor a promising scholar in their field or in an associated field. Through their work with you on IRISE-related research, and through additional work with IRISE and in DU classrooms, postdoctoral fellows contribute to the mission of IRISE and larger University strategic initiatives designed to develop knowledge bridges to address complex problems and issues of inequality in Denver and the larger Rocky Mountain West.
