Sinclair School of Nursing Announces Call for PFFFD Postdoctoral Program Applications

 

Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Program at University of Missouri

Applications will be due September 27, 2021.  

 

Program Overview
The Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity (PFFFD) Postdoctoral Program is designed to promote faculty diversity by developing scholars for tenure-track faculty positions at the University of Missouri or elsewhere. The PFFFD program is a unique opportunity for emerging scholars. PFFFD postdocs participate in professional development activities that integrate and expose them to the faculty experience.

Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented or through other experience and training. Postdoctoral positions are typically for two years and provide research, teaching, and professional development opportunities. The stipend is $56,000 per year plus University benefits and professional development funds. To be eligible for this program, applicants must have completed their doctoral degree, or expect to complete their degree no later than July 1, 2022.
