NYU Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is open to all areas of study represented at the University. Individuals who meet one of the following criteria are eligible to apply:
- Individuals who have completed their dissertation within the last three years or who will have completed their dissertation by September 1, 2019; or
- Professionals transitioning to academic careers in a field for which the doctorate is not the terminal degree.
NYU does not sponsor visa application for this Fellowship. Fellowship recipients must provide proof of authorization to work in the United States.
Priority is given to candidates who do not currently hold postdoctoral fellowships or traineeships. As part of its selection process, our selection committee looks for evidence of superior scholarly achievement (honors, awards, publications), commitment to research and teaching that value and enhance diversity, a clear mentorship plan, and promise of continuing achievement as scholars and teachers.
NYU will award up to six in-residence fellowships in 2019. Appointments are for two years, beginning in September, 2019 and ending in August, 2021. Fellows teach a maximum of one course per semester, participate in school and departmental activities, and have mentorship opportunities to prepare them for an academic career. Teaching at another institution and outside employment during the fellowship is prohibited.
Compensation and Allowances
Fellows will be appointed as “Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow” and will receive a $42,000 nine-month salary; an annual housing allowance ($20,000); a research allowance ($2,000); and reimbursement for one-time relocation fees (up to $3,000). Such compensation will be subject to appropriate taxation. The University also provides a benefits package, including medical and dental coverage.
