Postdoctoral Teaching Fellows

In recent years, Bowdoin College has been fortunate to create positions for a number of postdoctoral teaching fellows.

These fellowships are connected to a variety of programs, including the Consortium for Faculty Diversity, endowed positions such as the Doherty postdoctoral fellowships in marine biology, and grant-funded positions, such as the National Science Foundation-funded Mathematics and Climate Research Network position. In 2011-12, we welcomed the first cohort of postdocs in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, funded by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Postdoctoral fellows form an important part of our faculty, allowing Bowdoin to offer exciting new classes in emerging fields or new sub-disciplines, as well as creating important connections to graduate programs and advisors for many of our students contemplating graduate study. The Office of the Dean for Academic Affairs works closely with academic departments and programs to provide support for our postdoctoral fellows by fostering research, mentoring teaching, and helping them prepare for academic employment following their time at Bowdoin.
