Rising Scholars Postdoctoral Fellowship Program seeks to recruit scholars who have the potential to assume a tenure-track faculty position after two years, and who would benefit from a mentored professional development opportunity.
The goal of this program is to provide a mentored professional development opportunity to train the next generation of scholars for future tenure-track positions at UVA or elsewhere. Postdoctoral Fellows selected under this program will be appointed for two years (subject to annual review) and will carry out research, teaching and professional development activities directed toward securing a tenure-track position.
Psychology Department participates in both components of the program:
1) As a STEM field, Psychology invites under-represented researchers to join our department to pursue their research interests, and
2) Psychology Department also encourages recent psychology PhDs focusing on race justice and equity research to apply.
