University of Michigan Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Application Deadline:  October 2, 2017

The University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) invites applications for the LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The College seeks extraordinarily promising scholars whose research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with a demonstrated interest in bringing to their research and undergraduate teaching the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background and/or scholarly understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

LSA Collegiate Fellows will receive a starting salary of $60,000 plus benefits, and $7,000 for conference travel and research expenses. During the two-year term of appointment, the fellow will participate in the LSA Teaching Academy during their first year, and teach one course per year in the host department. The remainder of the fellows’ time will be devoted to pursuing research. Each fellow will receive career advising from a mentor during their fellowship.


Applicants who will have completed the doctoral degree no later than July 1, 2018, and no earlier than January 1, 2015, are eligible to apply. Candidates whose work is represented within the specified list of departments here are invited to apply.
