2020 Call for Applications
Applications for 2020: due December 1, 2019

The Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity is designed to promote and develop scholars for tenure-track faculty positions at the University of Missouri or elsewhere, in any discipline. (See annual call for list of current disciplines accepting applications.)  Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented or underserved in a particular discipline, or through other training or experience. The fellowships are for 2 years, during which time the scholars focus on scholarship and participate in professional development activities that integrate and expose them to the faculty experience, including the opportunity to teach in their discipline during the second year. 

Applicants who have their doctoral degree conferred within the last six years are eligible to apply, or who anticipate successfully completing their doctoral degree by July 1 of the year in which they would start the PFF program. The stipend is currently $56,000 with university benefits and professional development funds.

To submit an application, you will create an account and submit application materials for the PFF Postdoctoral Fellowship for Faculty Diversity through the SLATE system. Please note that this portal is the same portal used for graduate admissions, and you will need to create an account as a first-time user to begin the application process.

Email Dr. Behm-Morawitz at if you have any questions about the PFF postdoctoral program.
