There is not currently a call for 2013 Fellowships.
The University of New Mexico under the auspices of the Office for Equity and Inclusion invites applicants for postdoctoral fellowships. The fellowships will be awarded to African American, Hispanic or American Indian doctoral degree recipients whose teaching, research and service contribute to diversity in any academic discipline. Doctoral students at the latter stages of their dissertation completion or recent PhD graduates may apply. Doctoral candidates must have completed their doctorates before the award date.
Dependent upon available funding, two (2) awards will be made each year. Postdoctoral fellows will be appointed for one (1) year with a possible renewable appointment for a second year, contingent upon excellence of research produced and funding availability. The fellowships are designed to enable recent underrepresented minority PhDs to advance their research agenda and their academic portfolio while contributing to diversity initiatives at the University of New Mexico. Appointees will have a .75 FTE appointment in an academic department and a .25 FTE appointment in the Office for Equity and Inclusion.
Fellows will receive a stipend of $40,000 per year plus benefits and research and travel support. Relocation expenses up to $1,000 will also be provided.
Application deadline is March 31, 2012 and the award notification date will be May 31, 2012.
A cover letter, vita and recommendation letter should accompany the application. Application forms can be downloaded from the Office for Equity and Inclusion website at http://diverse.unm.edu and may be emailed to email@example.com or send completed packet to:
