UCLA CHANCELLOR’S POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP AT BUNCHE
In 2019, The Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies partnered with the UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PPFP) to offer up to two (2) Postdoctoral fellowships per academic year. The purpose of this postdoctoral fellowship program is to advance excellence through a commitment to diversity and equity in the fields supported by the Bunche Center. These Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship (CPF) recipients are housed within the broader Bunche Fellows Program.
To be considered for a Bunche/CPF fellowship, all interested candidates must first apply to the PPFP. Bunche Fellows are selected from a list of PPFP applicants who were ranked as alternates or unranked finalists and had indicated potential mentors at UCLA. A committee of Bunche affiliated faculty review the applicants. Bunche CPFs participate in all PPFP activities and are entitled to the UC hiring incentive. Selections will be made in the spring with fellows beginning the fall of the next academic year.
Qualified candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research or service and who will have a doctorate awarded by the start of the appointment on July 1st.
The award provides a salary staring at approximately $53,460 depending on field and experience, benefits including health insurance and paid vacation/sick leave and up to $5,000 for research-related and program expenses.
