Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program - University of Michigan

The University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) invites applications for the LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. LSA offers its students an outstanding undergraduate education in the liberal arts at a premier research institution, and is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive scholarly environment. The purpose of the LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is to support exceptional scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy and to prepare those scholars for possible tenure-track appointments in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at U-M.

 

The College seeks extraordinarily promising scholars whose research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with a demonstrated interest in bringing to their research and undergraduate teaching the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background and/or scholarly understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

 

Eligibility: Applications are welcome from any field represented in LSA academic departments. Review committees will evaluate applicants according to their potential for success in an academic career and contribution to higher education through their demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

 

To be eligible, applicants’ doctoral degrees should be completed between January 1, 2015 and July 1, 2018. Applicants in the fields of Economics and Political Science must complete their doctoral degree by July 1, 2019. Individuals awarded a Ph.D. from U-M, or currently holding a postdoctoral or faculty position at U-M, are not eligible. Application: LSA invites scholars to apply between July 18, 2017 and October 2, 2017.
