Wayne State University is excited to announce the Postdoctoral to Faculty Transition Fellowship (PFT) program, a major initiative to foster a diverse academic environment by encouraging and supporting promising scholars to launch their academic careers at our institution.    

WSU is seeking recent or upcoming Ph.D. graduates as postdoctoral fellows for three-year appointments beginning Sept. 1, 2017 (students who complete their dissertations by Sept. 1, 2017 are welcome to apply). Fellows receive stipends 20 percent above National Research Service Award levels, plus excellent benefits. They will work with faculty mentors, participate in learning communities and receive funding for two national conferences for every appointment year. Fellows who obtain external grants during their postdocs will be eligible for tenure-track appointments at WSU with competitive compensation and startup packages.

The application period begins April 1, 2017
