The University of San Francisco invites applications from underrepresented ethnic minority scholars for the USF Postdoctoral Fellowship Program for academic year 2015-2016.
The program is a “teaching postdoc,” intended to develop participants as both researchers and teachers. Fellows are housed in an existing department and work with senior faculty members to begin the development of an independent research program. In addition, fellows teach one course per semester in order to gain teaching experience.
The program will provide a competitive compensation rate, a modest budget for research supplies, and limited support for relocation. Fellows will be mentored by a senior faculty member; in the lab sciences, this mentor will provide lab space. Additional support includes computer and library privileges.
Fellows are members of one of the following groups: African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Pacific Islander, Hispanics/Latino/as, or American Indians, and are U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents Candidates must have completed their Ph.D. by June 2015, and be considering a career at a teaching-focused university in: Computer Science, Data Science, or Environment Science.
Applicants should submit online through usfjobs.com a cover letter indicating area of expertise and desired Department for placement (Computer Science, Data Science, or Environment Science); curriculum vitae; transcripts; research statement; teaching statement; evidence of teaching ability (including student evaluations); and three letters of recommendation. Transcripts and letters of recommendation can be sent to:
