Program for Faculty Diversity

The Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholars Program for Faculty Diversity

This program expands upon our efforts to enhance the diversity of postdoctoral scholars at the university and build a pool of exceptional underrepresented minority candidates for the next generation of faculty across higher education. These scholars will link the expertise of USC faculty and doctoral students with the knowledge and unique experience gained through their own research and scholarship.

These appointments are for up to two years, and begin in August 2018.  Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholars are expected to reside in the Los Angeles area during the academic year and to participate in the scholarly life of the host department and the university through seminars and other scholarly activities.  The salary for Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholars is $50,000 per year plus fringe benefits, with a research and travel account of $5,000 per year.

Candidates will choose one of the following academic units, departments, or programs listed here.
