SUBJECT: 2016-2017 Call for Applications – UC President’s Postdoctoral
Fellowship Program

The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
has announced the 2016-2017 Call for Applications. The application
deadline is November 1, 2015.

The 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 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 under-represented in
higher education in the United States.

This is an excellent opportunity for scholars in all fields whose
research, teaching, and service will contribute to the diversity and
equal opportunity. The program offers a salary with benefits, faculty
mentoring, professional network of fellows across the ten UC campuses,
and hiring incentives for faculty appointments.

Please share this information with outstanding graduate students, PhD
candidates, and postdoctoral appointees – both on our campus and beyond
– who may eligible for this prestigious award.

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 $44,500 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 without restrictions or limitations.
Individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals program are encouraged to apply.
