Northeastern University invites nominations and applications from candidates in all disciplines represented at Northeastern University for the Future Faculty Fellowship Program.

Consistent with Northeastern's mission, vision and core values, the objectives of the Future Faculty fellowship program are:

2) to introduce to Northeastern's academic community postdoctoral researchers fields who are considering faculty careers;

3) to enhance opportunities for academic careers for persons from diverse backgrounds who have demonstrated a commitment to an inclusive faculty and an inclusive academic experience for all students;

4) to prepare Future Faculty Fellows for possible tenure-track appointments at Northeastern;

5) to enhance the academic environment of Northeastern disciplines by providing opportunities for students and faculty to gain experience in multi-cultural, broadly diverse and inclusive work settings and research collaborations that improve the capacity of all their members.


A prospective Fellow must have completed the Ph.D. degree by the start of his / her fellowship term and no earlier than three years before the start of the fellowship term.

Fellows will be selected based on academic promise; alignment of the student's academic objectives with Northeastern's research projects, particularly with the potential research project(s) and/or presentation to which the Fellow would be assigned; and commitment to a diverse and inclusive academic community.

Currently employed postdoctoral scholars and Ph.D. students at Northeastern University are not eligible to apply.

A prospective Fellow must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States of America.
