Job Posting: Vanderbilt Academic Pathways Postdoctoral Fellowships

October 20, 2017

Vanderbilt University Graduate School in Nashville, Tennesee (United States) is offering Postdoctoral Fellowships through the Academic Pathways program. This program is designed to prepare recently graduated doctoral students (Ph.D., Ed.D., etc.) and/or a law degree (J.D.) for competitive academic careers. The need is particularly acute to develop faculty candidates who come from diverse racial, ethnic and other backgrounds and experiences.

The Academic Pathways Postdoctoral Fellowship creates a bridge between academic training and entry-level faculty positions at colleges and universities throughout the United States. These opportunities will be individualized based on the academic discipline of fellows with similar formats for the humanities, social science, and life/physical/biomedical science areas. 

Academic Pathways Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $60,000 for 2-3 years (depending on academic discipline) along with benefits, travel funding, and a research allowance.

To be considered, please apply to the Academic Pathways Program electronically on the Vanderbilt application page by November 1, 2017.

For more information regarding the program, please visit the Vanderbilt website or see the latest news article about this exciting program initiative. For questions and additional information regarding Academic Pathways, please contact the Vanderbilt Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at
