Welcome to The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Multicultural Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
At UNC Charlotte we believe that a diverse faculty, staff and student body are critical in advancing teaching, scholarship, and community engagement at UNC Charlotte. In the 21st century, an increasingly diverse society and a global economy are drivers for diversity in higher education. As North Carolina and the Charlotte region undergo rapid population growth and demographic change, UNC Charlotte must respond to the needs of a more diverse student population. Thus, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Multicultural Postdoctoral Fellowship is pleased to provide a Program for the appointment of multicultural postdoctoral researchers for a period of two years. The purpose of the Program is to develop scholars from underrepresented groups for possible tenure track appointments at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and other research universities. Postdoctoral scholars will be engaged full-time in research and may teach only one course per fiscal year.
We are pleased to announce that in 2019, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte joined the University of California's Partnership for Faculty Diversity to help support our Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunities at UNC Charlotte.
As a result of this partnership, applications for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Multicultural Postdoctoral Fellow Position must now be be submitted via the online application portal housed on the University of California's Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship website.
The UNC Charlotte Multicultural Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports 2 Postdoctoral scholars, engaged in full-time research and writing for a two-year term starting August 1. Fellows in the program are provided with a $47,476 annual salary plus a small research/travel fund as well as an office, computer, health benefits and a formal mentoring plan.
Postdoctoral support - both for Postdoctoral fellows in this program and other Postdoctoral fellows on campus, include professional development brown bags and workshops. The goals of these sessions are to faclitate both professional development and networking and social support.
Applications for study are limited to STEM applications at this time. Please specify your discipline of interest when applying.
