Postdoctoral Fellows For Faculty Diversity

We will begin accepting applications for Cohort VII (2023-2025) of the Postdoctoral Fellowship for Faculty Diversity in Early August 2022. 

The University of Maryland Baltimore County is dedicated to ensuring a diverse, inclusive, and scholarly environment that encourages outstanding individuals to enter the academic profession. The purpose of the Program is to support promising scholars who are committed to diversity and inclusive excellence in the academy and to prepare those scholars for possible tenure track appointments at UMBC..

UMBC appoints recent recipients of a Ph.D. degree as Postdoctoral Fellows for a two-year term in-residence fellowship. Fellows receive a starting stipend of $50,000, health benefits, $5,500 for conference travel, preparation of scholarly work, and technology needs. Fellows are also provided with office space, library and other privileges at the university. During the two-year fellowship, fellows are provided teaching and research mentors and specialized professional development opportunities. In addition to pursuing their research agenda, fellows teach one course a year in the host department.

Successful candidates for the Program are selected on the basis of scholarly promise and potential to add to the diversity of the UMBC community.  Fellows must have completed their terminal degree when the term of appointment commences and must be no more than three years beyond receiving the Ph.D.  Individuals awarded a Ph.D. from UMBC or currently holding a postdoctoral or faculty position (including adjunct positions) at UMBC are not eligible to participate in the fellowship program.
