The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California. The current program offers postdoctoral research fellowships and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to the diversity and equal opportunity at the University of California.

November 1, 2021

Fellowships are awarded for research conducted at any one of the University of California’s ten campuses. The annual award provides a salary starting at approximately $54,540 depending on field and experience, and $5,000 for research and professional development. The award also includes benefits (health, vision and dental), paid sick leave, maternity leave, and 4 weeks of paid "time off" during the fellowship term. Each award is for a minimum of 12 months and may be renewable for an additional term upon demonstration of academic/research productivity.

Applicants must receive a Ph.D. from an accredited university before the start of their fellowship. Successful applicants must present documents demonstrating that they are legally authorized to work in the United States. Individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are encouraged to apply.
