President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, USA
President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship, Research, University of California, USA
The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California.
The current program offers postdoctoral research fellowships, faculty mentoring, and eligibility for a hiring incentive to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity at the University of California.
These contributions may include public service addressing the needs of our increasingly diverse society, efforts to advance equitable access to higher education for women and minorities, or research focusing on undeserved populations or understanding issues of racial or gender inequalities.
The program is seeking applicants with the potential to bring to their academic careers the critical perspective that comes from their non – traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
The goal of the program is to provide research opportunity and career development for scholars whose work will enhance the diversity of the academic community at the University of California.
Of the President’s Postdoctoral Fellows appointed since 2001, approximately 75% are currently in tenure track faculty appointments and over 40% have received faculty appointments at University of California campuses.
Application Deadline : November 5, 2010.
