The Program
New York University's (NYU) scholarly community actively engages
a global world. Bringing individuals to NYU who reflect diverse
identities, perspectives and experiences enhances our scholarly
community and institutional standing. It also helps us to create a
supportive, intellectually challenging and inclusive environment in
which to live, work and learn.
To that end, the NYU Provost's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
supports promising scholars and educators from diverse backgrounds
whose life experience and research background will contribute
significantly to academic excellence at NYU. This program offers
postdoctoral research fellowships in all fields. Postdoctoral
scholars receive mentoring from NYU faculty, and extensive
professional development, and academic networking

Professionals transitioning to academic careers in a field for
which the doctorate is not the terminal degree.

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

research and teaching that value and enhance diversity, a clear
mentorship plan, and promise of continuing achievement as scholars
