Job Description


The 2024-2025 University of Pennsylvania and CHOP Postdoctoral Fellowships for Academic Diversity

University of Pennsylvania: Office of the Provost
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Open Date: Aug 07, 2023
Deadline: Nov 03, 2023 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Description

Postdoctoral Fellowships are competitive programs intended to increase the diversity of the academic research community at the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). While the Penn and CHOP programs have a common application form, they are independently funded and have separate review processes.

Both organizations seek to attract promising researchers and educators from different backgrounds, races, ethnic groups, and other diverse populations whose life experiences, research experiences and employment backgrounds will contribute significantly to their academic missions.

Fellowships are available for postdoctoral training in all areas of study at either Penn or CHOP. STEM applications are strongly encouraged. Successful candidates will receive mentored scholarly and research training as well as courses and workshops to enhance their research success skills and prepare them for a faculty position in a major university.

The current 2023-2024 stipend rate begins at $65,000 in year one with $2,000 increases in years two & three. Additionally, the fellow will receive annual allowances for research and travel related expenses of $6,000, and if eligible, a one-time relocation expense of up to $5,000. The University and CHOP also provide a benefits package.

Successful candidates will receive highly mentored scholarly and research training and have access to courses and workshops provided by partners on campus to enhance their research skills and prepare them for faculty positions in a major university.

The program is designed to provide postdocs with time to focus on research and publishing activities that will enhance their career prospects for either a faculty appointment in an academic institution or an appointment in other sectors of the economy such as industry, government or nonprofit organizations.

Start dates will be arranged in consultation with the faculty mentor and will begin as early as July 2024.

Qualifications:

  • Candidates must be US citizens or permanent residents
  • Graduate students from Penn and other institutions who have completed, or will complete their requirements for Ph.D. by the fellowship start date
  • Postdoctoral scholars from other institutions who have completed their doctoral degree within the last two years
  • Professional applicants (M.D., D.M.D., V.M.D., J.D., etc.) within a year of completing their post-degree professional training
  • Postdocs, residents and fellows who currently have a position at Penn or CHOP are ineligible for this program
