About

In 2014, the University of Colorado Boulder joined in a collaborative partnership with the University of California and the University of Michigan to offer postdoctoral fellowship opportunities at CU Boulder. In this program, the University of Colorado Boulder offers postdoctoral research fellowships in all academic fields, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development and academic networking opportunities.

The University of Colorado Boulder views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing an exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to the university by offering the possibility of either a postdoc alone or a combined postdoc and tenure-track faculty appointment.

The University seeks applicants whose creative work/research, teaching and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their academic careers the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
