The Berkeley Chancellorʹs Postdoctoral Fellowship Program offers postdoctoral research fellowships and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity at the University of California.

The contributions to diversity may include public service towards increasing equitable access in fields where women and minorities are underrepresented. In some fields, the contributions may include research focusing on underserved populations or understanding inequalities related to race, gender, disability or LGBT issues.

The program is seeking applicants with the potential to bring to their academic and research careers the perspective that comes from their non‐traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

Award and Tenure: Awards will be made to applicants who show promise for tenure‐track appointments on the Berkeley campus. Each award is for a 12‐month period, with the potential of renewal for an additional term upon demonstration of academic productivity.

Salary: The annual award provides a salary starting at $42,000 depending on field and level of experience, and health insurance, vision and dental benefits, four weeks paid time off and up to $5,000 for research‐related and program travel expenses.

Eligibility: Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents at the time of application.

Application: All applicants for the Berkeley Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program should submit their application to the University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The mentor’s letter should address the department’s future hiring plans and the applicant’s potential for appointment at UC Berkeley.

Applications must be completed online by November 1, 2014.
