The University of Kentucky calls applications for University Research Postdoctoral Fellowship in the United States of America. The University Research Postdoctoral Fellowship for individuals training in disciplines with limited gender diversity.
Since 1990, the Office of the Vice President for Research has supported two postdoctoral fellowship programs with the primary goal of diversifying the pipeline of candidates qualified to become academic leaders in their fields. These programs support the stipend, plus benefits, for the fellows along with some funds for their research career development. Because a major goal of these fellowships is to prepare the fellows to be competitive for faculty positions, we will be enhancing the research development activities associated with these awards.
The University of Kentucky Postdoctoral Research Fellowship recipients will pursue an individualized research program under the mentorship of one or more UK professors and actively participate in departmental and professional research-related activities. In addition, a series of research career development activities will be available which are designed to enhance the fellow’s competitiveness for a future faculty position.
The University of Kentucky (UK or UKY) is a public research university in Lexington, Kentucky. Additionally, founded in 1865 by John Bryan Bowman as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky, the university is one of the state’s two land-grant universities (the other being Kentucky State University) and the institution with the highest enrollment in the state, with 30,545 students as of fall 2019.
