Steinhardt Diversity Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (Pilot Initiative)

Funding: $42,800 (Note: Matching funds of $42,800 required)
Duration: Up to 2 years with funding of $42,800 per year

This award augments the Provost’s Postdoctoral Program for Academic Diversity by offering “Steinhardt Research Fellows” that are co-funded between the School and external grant funds.  We regard this program as an opportunity to attract to our intellectual community those promising scholars whose backgrounds, research experience, and training will contribute significantly to academic excellence at NYU while also strengthening our commitment to inclusion and diversity by bringing in scholars from underrepresented minority groups to Steinhardt.

Faculty applicants for this award must have research funding from an external source in hand to support two-years of a half-time postdoctoral fellow (see budget specifications below), for the period September 1, 2017-August 31, 2019.  

Steinhardt Research Fellows will be appointed as “Assistant Professor/Research Fellow” and will receive a $42,000 nine-month salary, an annual $20,000 housing allowance, a $2,000 research allowance, and $3,000 in one-time relocation fees.
