These postdoctoral fellowships foster the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees, by permitting them to pursue their research while gaining mentored experience as teachers and members of the departments and/or programs in which they are housed. The program also benefits Dartmouth by complementing existing curricula with underrepresented fields. Applications will be accepted in the various fields of humanities, social sciences, interdisciplinary programs, sciences, engineering, business and medicine.
