Statement Review Process
Candidates will be evaluated based on their potential to support Caltech's commitment to research excellence and diversity. The research statement and diversity statements will be given equal weighting in the evaluation process. Statements will be evaluated by a committee of faculty members. Candidates do not need to belong to a particular group or demographic to be successful.
Research Statement - The candidate's potential for scholarly impact, based on a well-reasoned proposal, prior research accomplishments, and having the support of the PI, with adequate resources, to conduct the proposed research.
Diversity Statement - The candidate's potential to support Caltech's commitment to diversity, inclusion, equity, and access, based on the applicant's experiences with diversity in research, teaching, and/or service as detailed in the diversity statement.
