The University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) invites applications for the LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. LSA offers its students an outstanding undergraduate education in the liberal arts at a premier research institution, and is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive scholarly environment. The purpose of the LSA Collegiate Fellows program is to support exceptional scholars in all liberal arts fields who are committed to diversity in the academy and to prepare those scholars for possible tenure-track appointments in LSA at the University of Michigan.

The College seeks early career scholars whose research, and/or teaching, and/or service will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with a demonstrated interest in bringing to their teaching/mentoring or research the critical perspectives that come from nontraditional educational backgrounds and pathways, and/or scholarly understanding of the experiences of groups who are historically underrepresented or marginalized in higher education.

During the fellowship, Fellows will devote their time to pursuing their independent research, as well as participate in pedagogical development activities such as the LSA Teaching Academy and classroom teaching/engagement. All Fellows are expected to be in residence during the academic year and to engage in departmental seminars and related activities. Fellows will also receive career advising from a departmental mentor during their fellowship.

For the 2022–2023 application cycle, the program will only consider applications from candidates that wish to make their primary scholarly home in an LSA natural science or social science department. For applicants in the social sciences, doctoral degrees should be completed between January 1, 2020 and July 1, 2023.

Individuals awarded a PhD from U-M or currently holding a postdoctoral, faculty, or staff position at U-M are not eligible.
