We are pleased to announce applications are being accepted for the 2022-2023 Illinois Distinguished Postdoctoral Research Associate Program. Individuals from underrepresented groups and women (in STEM) who are promising candidates for campus faculty positions may be nominated for the program. Funding is available to support up to five post-doctoral research associates that would enhance campus diversity. Candidates do not apply directly but are nominated by academic units that wish to hire them. Priority will be given to external candidates, preferably identified through a search. A faculty member advises each postdoc or scholar with the goal of preparing them for tenure track assistant professor appointments at Illinois. The program has been successful in enhancing faculty diversity at Illinois, with 11 of its postdocs being appointed to tenure-stream positions since its launch in 2015.
Applications will be accepted from January 31 to March 21, 2022.
Please find attached details regarding the program and how to apply.
