Welcome to the University of Michigan's President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program website. We hope this site provides the information you need about the new postdoctoral program offered at the University of Michigan. After reviewing the materials here, if you have questions about this program, please contact us at ADV-Michigan-Postdoc@umich.edu.
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 ten schools and colleges:
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.
