Postdoctoral Fellowships for Academic Diversity
Postdoctoral Fellowships for Academic Diversity:
Penn Provost's Postdoctoral Fellowship &
CHOP Postdoctoral Fellowship for Academic Diversity
Deadline: November 1, 2019
The Postdoctoral Fellowships for Academic Diversity are competitive programs intended to increase the diversity of the academic research community at the University of Pennsylvania and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Both organizations seek to attract promising researchers and educators from different backgrounds, races, ethnic groups, and other diverse populations whose life experiences, research experiences and employment backgrounds will contribute significantly to their academic missions. Fellowships are available for postdoctoral training in all areas of study at either Penn or CHOP. STEM applications are encouraged. Successful candidates will receive mentored scholarly and research training as well as courses and workshops to enhance their research success skills and prepare them for a faculty position in a major university.
While the Penn and CHOP programs have a common application form, they are independently funded and have separate review processes.
