Post Docs at the University of California

The UC Davis Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program offers postdoctoral research fellowships and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to the diversity and equal opportunity at the University of California. These contributions may include public service addressing the needs of our increasingly diverse society, efforts to advance equitable access to higher education, or research focusing on underserved populations or understanding inequalities related to race, gender, disability or LGBT.

The program is seeking applicants 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 members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

The UC Davis Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program partners with sister programs sponsored by the UC Office of the President, the University of Michigan, and other UC campuses.

Deadline: 1st November

Awards will be announced in April and May and be made to applicants who show promise for tenure-track appointments on the UC Davis campus. Each award is for a 12-month period in residence, renewable for one year upon demonstration of academic productivity and participation in program events. All salaries will be in accordance with the UC Davis Salary Scale for Postdoctoral Scholars. The award includes health insurance, vision and dental benefits, paid sick leave, maternity leave, and four weeks of paid time off. It also provides up to $5,000 for research-related and program travel expenses.
