Welcome to the University of Colorado Boulder's Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship for Diversity Program website. We hope this site provides the information you need about the new postdoctoral program offered at CU-Boulder. After reviewing the materials here, if you have questions about this program, please contact us at cpfellows@colorado.edu.


In 2014, the University of Colorado Boulder joined in a collaborative partnership with the University of California and the University of Michigan to offer postdoctoral fellowship opportunities at CU Boulder. In this program, the University of Colorado Boulder offers postdoctoral research fellowships in all academic fields, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development and academic networking opportunities.

The University of Colorado Boulder views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing an exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to the university by offering the possibility of either a postdoc alone or a combined postdoc and tenure-track faculty appointment.

The University seeks applicants whose creative work/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 academic careers the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.


Applicants must obtain the sponsorship of a tenured faculty member other than their PhD dissertation advisor who is willing to serve as their primary mentor. Please work closely with your mentor when preparing your application. The below guidelines should be used when preparing your application, and include sections for your mentor and department chair.
