University of Maryland - PRESIDENT’S POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

THE PROGRAM

The University of Maryland President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 2016 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers. 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 Maryland. 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 the University of Maryland, College Park campus.

The award includes a salary starting at approximately $55,000 depending on field and experience, benefits including health insurance and paid vacation/sick leave, with the possibility 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. Applicants must be United States citizens or permanent residents at the time of application.
