The Preparing Future Faculty Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity is designed to promote and develop such scholars for tenure-track faculty positions at the University of Missouri and elsewhere, in any discipline. Postdoctoral Fellowships are for two years during which time Postdoctoral Scholars focus on scholarship and participate in an array of professional development activities that integrate and expose them to the faculty experience, including the opportunity to teach in their discipline during the second year. The starting stipend will be $55,000 per year including University benefits. Fellows will be provided with travel funds to attend a national meeting, as well as funds to travel to other campuses as necessary for scholarship and program professional development activities.
