New York University’s (NYU) scholarly community actively engages a global world. Bringing individuals to NYU who reflect diverse identities, perspectives and experiences enhances our scholarly community and institutional standing. It also helps us to create a supportive, intellectually challenging and inclusive environment in which to live, work and learn.
To that end, the NYU Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports promising scholars and educators from diverse backgrounds whose life experience and research background will contribute significantly to academic excellence at NYU. This program offers postdoctoral research fellowships in all fields. Postdoctoral scholars receive mentoring from NYU faculty, and extensive professional development, and academic networking opportunities.
NYU Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is open to all areas of study represented at the University. Individuals who meet one of the following criteria are eligible to apply:
NYU will award up to six in-residence fellowships in 2019. Appointments are for two years, beginning in September, 2019 and ending in August, 2021. Fellows teach a maximum of one course per semester, participate in school and departmental activities, and have mentorship opportunities to prepare them for an academic career. Teaching at another institution and outside employment during the fellowship is prohibited.
Fellows will be appointed as “Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow” and will receive a $42,000 nine-month salary; an annual housing allowance ($20,000); a research allowance ($2,000); and reimbursement for one-time relocation fees (up to $3,000).
