NYU recognizes the value of diversity in supporting an intellectually vibrant and inclusive scholarly community. To that end, NYU has created the Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program to support promising scholars and educators from diverse backgrounds whose life experience and research experience will contribute significantly to academic excellence at NYU.

The fellowship program is open to all areas of study at the University. Individuals who meet one of the following criteria are eligible to apply:

  • Individuals who have completed their dissertation within the last three years or who will have completed their dissertation by September 1, 2019; or
  • Professionals transitioning to academic careers (for those in field for which the doctorate is not the terminal degree, including those with an MLS/MLIS within the last three years.)

The selection committee looks for evidence of superior scholarly achievement (honors, awards, publications), commitment to library instruction, and research in institutions that value diversity and promise of continuing achievement as scholars and teachers. Applicants are encouraged to describe their interest in any area of need for libraries including but not limited to: data curation, metadata management, digital preservation, digital humanities, user experience and assessment, business, sciences and engineering librarianship, etc.

Appointments are for two years and begin in September. Fellows are appointed as “Assistant Curator/Faculty Fellow” and receive salary; an annual housing allowance; and research allowance and professional development support for ALA Annual Conference. The University also provides a benefits package, including medical and dental coverage.
