The University of New Hampshire — Postdoctoral Diversity and Innovation Scholar

Summary of Position
The University of New Hampshire (UNH) is proud to launch the Postdoctoral Diversity and Innovation Scholars program designed to support the professional development, excellence, diversity and inclusion of underrepresented groups of postdoctoral scholars through a nationally competitive application and selection process. UNH is exceptionally poised to provide a unique two-year professional development experience tailored to the needs of our postdoctoral scholars that can help prepare them to apply for subsequent tenure track faculty positions.

The UNH professional development model includes nationally recognized faculty development programs and specific experiences such as an ongoing mentored research experience with a senior faculty member in an academic department, and participation with junior faculty in both the summer-long UNH Writing Academy, and the semester-long UNH Research & Engagement Academy. As part of these Academies, scholars will also work closely with a scholarly coach, have resources to visit federal agencies, participate in monthly cohort-based experiences with experts and leaders across the campus and nationally. In addition, scholars will gain access to workshops on teaching and learning offered by the Center for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching and Learning.

The University of New Hampshire is committed to creating a more diverse academic community, knowing that inclusion, diversity and equity are values inextricably linked to educational excellence. Diverse scholars strengthen our ability to reach the individual and collective potential for all faculty, staff, students and the society we serve.
