The Office of the Vice Provost for Research, through the OVPR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, gives doctorate-granting departments the opportunity to apply for funding to support postdoc positions to expand and enhance research capabilities.
Previously, the OVPR Postdoc Fellowship Program accepted applications in odd-numbered years. Beginning in 2016, however, the program will move to an annual application cycle. The next application deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016. Departments who are approved under this round will receive funding for a 12-month fellowship position that runs from June 1, 2017 through May 31, 2018. The award also carries the possibility of a second year extension for fellows who perform successfully in their first year.
