President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

In 2021, Penn State joined in a collaborative partnership with the University of California and other leading universities to offer postdoctoral fellowship opportunities for promising scholars. In this program, Penn State now offers postdoctoral research fellowships in most academic disciplines, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities.

Penn State views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing exceptional opportunities to recruit potential new faculty members to academia; in some cases, the University may be able to offer sequential combined postdoc and tenure track faculty appointments.

The University seeks applicants whose 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 research and teaching the critical perspective that comes from a non-traditional educational background or an understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
