LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Fellowship Period: July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2019
Application Deadline: November 7, 2016
The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan is excited to announce the LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, a major initiative aimed to promote a diverse scholarly environment, encourage outstanding individuals to enter academia, and support scholars committed to diversity.

This two-year fellowship program provides early career faculty with dedicated research time, mentorship, travel funding, and professional development opportunities to prepare scholars for possible tenure-track appointments in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. Fellows will teach one course each year.
LSA hopes for multiple fellows to be selected each year and placed throughout the College, so we encourage wide dissemination of this announcement to networks in any LSA discipline.
Candidates whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion in LSA are encouraged to apply.
