Wayne State University Postdoctoral to Faculty Transition Fellowship Program

Modified: March 29, 2017

Wayne State University is excited to announce the Postdoctoral to Faculty Transition Fellowship (PFT) program, a major initiative to foster a diverse academic environment by supporting promising scholars studying urban disparities to launch their academic careers at their institution.
They seek recent or upcoming PhD graduates as postdoctoral fellows for three-year appointments beginning September 1, 2017 (students who succeessfully defend their dissertation by September 1 are eligible to apply). The goal is to build a pool of early-career, urban-disparity scholars who will contribute to diversity and bolster academic excellence in keeping with Wayne State's mission and strategic plan.
Successful candidates will  receive stipends 20 percent above National Research Service Award levels, plus excellent benefits. They will work with faculty mentors, participate in learning communities and receive funding for national conferences. Fellows who obtain external grants during their postdocs will be considered for Wayne State tenure-track appointments.

Applications for the fellowships begin immediately and end 5 PM on Saturday, April 15. Apply here.
