Preparing Future Faculty Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions

The University of Missouri is committed to the advancement of teachers, scholars, and researchers who can help achieve the benefits of a diverse educational environment. The Preparing Future Faculty Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity is designed to promote and develop scholars in any discipline for tenure-track faculty positions at the University of Missouri or elsewhere. Postdoctoral fellowships are for two years during which time scholars focus on scholarship and participate in professional development activities that integrate and expose them to the faculty experience, including the opportunity to teach in their discipline the second year. The stipend will be $56,000 per year with University benefits and professional development funds that may be used to attend a scholarly meeting, to travel to other campuses as necessary for scholarship, and/or for professional development activities. 

Applicants whose doctoral degree is conferred by a regionally accredited university by August 1, 2019 are eligible to apply. Current postdoctoral scholars also may apply if their doctoral degree was awarded in or after spring 2014. Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented and/or underserved in a particular discipline or through other training or experience.
