Postdoctoral Teaching Fellows

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.

Bowdoin College has been fortunate to create positions for a number of postdoctoral teaching fellows each year. These fellowships are connected to a variety of programs, including the Consortium for Faculty Diversity (CFD), endowed positions such as the Doherty postdoctoral fellowships in marine biology, and grant-funded positions, including a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to fund postdocs in the humanities and humanistic social sciences.

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.
