Description:
As part of an effort to promote a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences among its faculty as set forth in the University of Chicago Diversity Statement, the University of Chicago invites nominations and applications for the Provost’s Career Enhancement Postdoctoral Scholarship (PCEPS).

This year, with generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Office of the Provost will award four 2-year postdoctoral scholarships to promising junior scholars in all fields. Candidates must have completed all requirements for their doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D., J.D., or foreign equivalent) before the scholarship start date, and must be no more than three years beyond receiving that degree. Individuals currently holding a postdoctoral or faculty position at the University of Chicago are not eligible.

Successful candidates will be selected on the basis of academic achievement, scholarly promise, potential to add to the diversity of the University community, and the likelihood that the individual may become a qualified and competitive candidate for a faculty position at the University of Chicago upon the completion of the Scholarship. Each cohort of PCEPS holders will include at least one scholar whose research furthers the mission of the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture.

In addition to pursuing their research, Scholars will teach one quarter-long course in their field for each year in which they hold a postdoctoral scholarship.

Individuals interested in the scholarship should visit the Apply for a Scholarship page on this site for details. Any member of the University of Chicago faculty may nominate a candidate who then must apply to the program. Although a University of Chicago nomination will be considered one of the three required recommendations for that applicant, a nomination or recommendation by a member of the University of Chicago faculty is not required. Faculty members at other institutions should encourage promising candidates to apply directly using this site, and may provide a recommendation on behalf of the candidate.
