About the Program

In 2011, the University of Michigan joined in a collaborative partnership with the University of California to offer postdoctoral fellowship opportunities at the University of Michigan. In this program, the University of Michigan now offers postdoctoral research fellowships coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities. Eligibility for the fellowship may vary by year.

For 2023-24, the University welcomes applications from potential fellows who aim to work with faculty mentors in the following eight schools and colleges:

  • School of Dentistry
  • Marsal Family School of Education
  • College of Engineering
  • School for the Environment and Sustainability
  • Ford School of Public Policy
  • School of Kinesiology
  • School of Music, Theater and Dance
  • School of Nursing
  • School of Public Health
  • School of Social Work 

The University of Michigan views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing an exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to tenure-track positions at the University by offering either a postdoc alone or a combined postdoc and tenure track faculty appointment to follow.

The University seeks applicants whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their research and undergraduate teaching the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
