Provost's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
New York University’s Provost's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was created to attract and support a wide range of brilliant young scholars and educators from diverse backgrounds whose research experience, life experience, and employment background can significantly contribute to academic excellence. The program provides fellows with faculty mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities. The ultimate goal of the program is for participants to join the ranks of faculty at competitive institutions.
NYU awards up to eight in-residence fellowships each year. Appointments are for two years and begin in September. Fellows teach a maximum of one course per semester, participate in school and departmental activities, and are assigned a mentor to prepare them for a career in academia. Teaching at another institution and outside employment during the fellowship is prohibited.
