At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Provost's Career Enhancement Postdoctoral Scholarships

As part of an effort to promote a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences among its faculty, the University of Chicago invites nominations and applications for the Provost’s Career Enhancement Postdoctoral Scholarship (PCEPS). The Office of the Provost will select two promising junior scholars to receive a two-year postdoctoral scholarship beginning fall 2011. Scholars in all fields are eligible. Candidates must have completed all requirements for their doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D., J.D., or foreign equivalent) before the scholarship start date, and must have received their doctoral degree no earlier than November 1, 2007. Individuals currently holding a postdoctoral or faculty position at the University of Chicago are not eligible.

Successful candidates will be selected on the basis of academic achievement; scholarly promise; a demonstrable commitment to the ideals set forth in the University of Chicago Diversity Statement; and the likelihood that the individual may become a qualified and competitive candidate for a faculty position at the University of Chicago upon the completion of the Scholarship. Each cohort of PCEPS holders will include at least one scholar whose research furthers the mission of the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture.

In addition to pursuing their research, Scholars will teach one quarter-long course in their field for each year in which they hold a postdoctoral scholarship.

Applications and nominations will be accepted September 1, 2010 through November 1, 2010.
