Thanks to JET alumna, Jennifer Hwang (Shizuoka-ken, 2008-2012) for passing along the following job opening at her institution:
The Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education (VPGE) is a dynamic and fast-paced team that delivers programs to Stanford’s 9,000+ graduate students and 3,000+ postdoctoral scholars. We work collaboratively across the university with schools and other vice provost areas to enhance the graduate educational experience. VPGE supports programs, administration, and services to the university community and graduate students in five portfolio areas: fellowships and funding, professional development, diversity and inclusion, interdisciplinary learning, and academic guidance.
VPGE is looking for a detail-oriented Assistant Director of Fellowships to join our team in supporting approximately 700 fellowship recipients each year. Reporting to the Associate Director of Fellowships, you will develop your strengths by playing an essential role in many aspects of VPGE Fellowship administration, including fellow selection, funding, and communications. You will thrive in an environment where you enjoy working in databases, collaborating with university partners, and being a resource for students and the VPGE team.
