PRESIDENT’S POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM, University of California


CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

THE PROGRAM. 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 and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields
whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to the diversity and
equal opportunity at the University of California. The contributions to
diversity may include public service towards increasing equitable access
in fields where women and minorities are underrepresented. In some fields,
the contributions may include research focusing on underserved populations
or
understanding inequalities related to race, gender, disability or LGBT.
The program is seeking applicants with the potential to bring to their
academic and research careers the critical perspective that comes from
their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the
experiences of members of groups historically underrepresented in higher
education in the United States.

AWARDS AND APPOINTMENTS. Fellowships are awarded for research conducted at
any one of the University of California’s ten campuses. The award includes
a salary starting at approximately $49,200 depending on field and
experience, benefits including health insurance and paid
vacation/sick leave, and up to $5,000 for research-related and program
travel expenses. Each award is for a minimum of 12-months and may be
renewable for an additional term upon demonstration of academic/research
productivity.

ELIGIBILITY. Applicants must receive a Ph.D. from an accredited university
before the start of their fellowship. Successful applicants must present
documents demonstrating that they are legally authorized to work in the
United States. Individuals granted deferred action status under the
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are encouraged to apply.
