Bowdoin College has been an active member of the Consortium for Faculty Diversity (CFD) since 1987 and administers an annual process for the appointment of a few postdoctoral fellows each academic year.
The CFD Postdoctoral Fellowship at Bowdoin
The postdoctoral fellowship is intended for scholars who have been awarded the Ph.D. or M.F.A. no later than the beginning of the fellowship year and no earlier than five years before the beginning of the fellowship year. Postdoctoral fellows will receive compensation commensurate with the salary of a full-time, one-year faculty member with comparable qualifications.
Modest funds will be made available to support professional expenses related to research and travel during the time of appointment.
Postdoctoral fellowship recipients will be expected to teach the equivalent of one semester-long course during each semester of residency, participate in departmental seminars, and interact regularly with students.
Members of the Fellow's department or program, other colleagues with similar interests, the Center for Learning and Teaching, and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs will provide mentoring.
