University of San Francisco Gerardo Marín Diversity Fellowships
Each year, the Provost’s Office, under the leadership of the Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach, invites scholars from underrepresented ethnic communities to apply for prestigious fellowships.
The University of San Francisco invites applications for the Gerardo Marín Postdoctoral Fellowship for 2017-2018 academic year. The Gerardo Marín Postdoctoral Fellowship seeks to help increase the presence of currently underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. professoriate by supporting post-doctoral scholars.
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 compensation, 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.
Candidates in disciplines in which racial and ethnic groups are traditionally underrepresented will receive special consideration. Candidates must have completed their doctorate by Summer 2017, and be considering a career in one of the following fields:
Education: Counseling Psychology, Leadership Studies, Learning and Instruction, International and Multicultural Education, Teacher Education
Non-U.S. scholars are eligible if they are able to get a J-1 visa or apply for the Optional Practical Training (OPT), the work benefit through the F-1 visa.
