Thank you for your interest in the Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity (CPPFD). The program prides itself on its continued commitment to building an exceptional intellectual community and advancing scholars from varied disciplines and lived experiences in higher education.

Program Mission: develop postdocs for possible tenure track appointments at the University of North Carolina and other research universities.

As part of a continuing commitment to building an exceptional intellectual community and advancing scholars from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences in higher education, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity supports postdoctoral research appointments for a period of two years to develop scholars for possible tenure track appointments at the University of North Carolina and other research universities. Postdoctoral scholars will be engaged full-time in research and have the option to teach one course per fiscal year.

The program supports 10 postdoctoral scholars, engaged full-time in research and writing for a two-year term starting July 1. Fellows in the program are provided with research funds as well as departmental mentor/s, office, computer, health benefits and $55,000 annual salary. Meetings and workshops are structured for the purposes of networking, social interaction and supporting professional development of diversity postdoctoral scholars within the program.
