Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
Wayne State University is excited to announce the Postdoctoral to Faculty Transition Fellowship (PFT) program, a major initiative to foster a diverse academic environment to support promising scholars studying urban disparities to launch their academic careers at our institution.

We seek recent or upcoming Ph.D. graduates as postdoctoral fellows for three-year appointments beginning Sept. 1, 2017 (students who successfully defend their dissertations by Sept. 1 are eligible to apply). The goal is to build a pool of early-career, urban-disparity scholars who will contribute to diversity and bolster academic excellence in keeping with Wayne State's mission and strategic plan.

Successful candidates will receive stipends 20 percent above National Research Service Award levels, plus excellent benefits. They will work with faculty mentors, participate in learning communities and receive funding for national conferences. Fellows who obtain external grants during their postdocs will be considered for Wayne State tenure-track appointments.
