Postdoctoral Fellowships
The Postdoctoral Fellowship for Academic Diversity Program is a competitive program whose goal is to increase the diversity of the community of scholars devoted to academic research. We seek to attract promising researchers and educators from different backgrounds, races, ethnic groups, and other diverse populations whose life experience, research experience, and employment background will contribute significantly to the academic mission. Fellowships are available for postdoctoral training in all areas of study at Penn. Successful candidates will receive mentored scholarly and research training as well as courses and workshops to enhance their research success skills and prepare them for faculty positions in major universities.

Eligibility
• Graduate students from Penn and other institutions who have completed or will complete their requirements for the Ph.D. by the Fellowship start date (July 2015).
• Postdoctoral scholars from other institutions who have completed their dissertations within the last three years.
• Professional applicants (M.D., D.M.D., V.M.D., J.D., etc.) within a year of completing their post-degree professional training.
• U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
• Postdocs, residents and fellows who currently have a position at Penn are ineligible for this program.
