In light of UNC Charlotte’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and building a strong intellectual community of scholars from different backgrounds, we are recruiting for (a) competitive postdoctoral research fellow(s) in STEM disciplines for a period of two years. The purpose of the MPFP is to support the early development of scholars who show promise of distinguished research careers and who are from historically underrepresented groups.

Applications should include a brief statement of the grounds of eligibility. Postdoctoral fellows will be engaged full-time in research and may teach up to two courses per academic year as part of their appointment. Fellows are required to be in residence each semester.

There will be a significant department and faculty mentoring component involved with this fellowship. The department must outline a mentoring and professional/career development plan for two years and identify the available and potential resources in the unit to support the fellow for two years. The host department must identify a faculty member or research team responsible for mentoring the fellow.

UNC Charlotte will provide regular professional development opportunities (teaching, mentoring, job search, etc.) for the fellows throughout the course of their appointment.
