The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California.

How to apply

Applications for the President’s and Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowship Programs must be submitted via the online application.

The online application for the next award cycle is available each year from September through October. The application deadline is November 1.

Applicants may apply to the University of California, University of Michigan, University of Maryland, Carnegie Mellon University and University of Minnesota President's Postdoctoral Fellowship programs, the University of Colorado Boulder Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowship program and the California Alliance Postdoctoral Fellowship Program with the same application provided they submit separate mentor letters and research proposals.

All applications submitted to the University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program will automatically be included in the competition for Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowship Programs if there is one at the UC campus where the proposed UC faculty mentor is located. Applicants may apply to only one University of California campus.

The program

The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California. The current program offers postdoctoral research fellowships, professional development and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity at UC.

Contributions to diversity and equal opportunity

The contributions to diversity may include public service towards increasing equitable access in fields where women and minorities are under-represented. In some fields, the contributions may include research focusing on underserved populations or understanding inequalities related to race, gender, disability or LGBT issues. The program seeks applicants with the potential to bring to their academic and research careers the perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

Faculty appointments

The goal of the program is to provide research opportunity and career development for scholars whose work will enhance the diversity of the academic community at the University of California. Approximately 75% of UC President's Postdoctoral Fellows have received tenure track faculty appointments. Since 2003, over 100 former fellows received faculty appointments at University of California campuses.

Partnership for faculty diversity

The UC President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports partner programs sponsored by the University of Michigan, University of Colorado, individual UC campuses and the UC-Affiliated National Laboratories. Please see the links below for information about these programs.
