The Postdoctoral to Faculty Transition Fellowship (PFT) program fosters a diverse academic environment by supporting promising scholars studying urban disparities to launch their academic careers at Wayne State University.
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. Recent or upcoming Ph.D. graduates are encouraged to apply as postdoctoral fellows for three-year appointments beginning Sept. 1, 2017.
Successful candidates will receive stipends 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.
Applications for the fellowships begin immediately and end 5 p.m. on April 15.
