Rosenberg-Hill Fellow Rebecca Wolfe Joins Office for Postdoctoral Scholars

Rebecca WolfeEach year, the Graduate Division Dean's Office and the Office for Postdoctoral Scholars (OPS) benefit from the hard work of three Rosenberg-Hill fellows, who support our administrative operations as well as conduct studies that will benefit graduate students and postdocs at UCSF for years to come. 

The three fellows, all PhD candidates in one of UCSF's social science doctoral programs, also benefit from working in the Graduate Division/OPS. In addition to the financial benefits of the fellowship, they gain meaningful experience in university administration at a research-intensive institution, which helps prepare them for academic careers.

Rebecca Wolfe, a 4th-year student in the Sociology PhD program, where her mentor is Dr. Kristen Harknett, has been specifically assigned to the Office for Postdoctoral Scholars. Rebecca will be working closely with Assistant Dean for Postdocs Gabriela Monsalve on projects pertaining to postdocs.

Rebecca was born and raised in California, having grown up in the Sacramento area. She earned her bachelor's in sociology at Seattle Pacific University. Her dissertation research looks at the intersection of religious culture, specifically evangelical Christianity, and the development of eating disorders. When she finishes her PhD, she hopes to find new opportunities to continue and further her research in relation to eating disorders. 

Rebecca remarked, "I am really looking forward to being able to support our community in a new way."
