Classification Title:
 
Working Title:
Multicultural Postdoctoral Fellowship  
Campus:
UNC Charlotte  
Region:
Piedmont/Triangle  
Job Summary:
"Postdoctoral fellows will be engaged full-time in research and may teach up to two courses per academic year as part of their appointment. Fellows are required to be in-residence each semester during their appointment. The postdoctoral fellow will receive extensive university and program mentoring throughout their appointment. A Postdoctoral Fellow (""postdoc"") is a professional apprenticeship designed to provide recent Ph.D. recipients with an opportunity to develop further the research skills acquired in their doctoral programs or to learn new research techniques, in preparation for an academic or research career. UNC Charlotte embraces the principle of the National Academies? Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy (COSEPUP) that ?the postdoctoral experience is first and foremost an apprenticeship whose purpose is to gain scientific, technical, and professional skills that advance the professional career of the postdoc.? In the process of further developing their own research skills, it is expected that Postdoctoral Fellows will also play a significant role in the performance of research at the University and augment the role of graduate faculty in providing research instruction to graduate students. A Postdoctoral Fellow works under the supervision of a regular faculty member, who serves as a mentor to the Fellow, and it is expected that the faculty mentor will impart the realities, and variety, of scientific careers, and will encourage experiences outside the laboratory to broaden postdocs' aspirations. Within the confines of the particular research focus assigned by that faculty member, the Postdoctoral Fellow functions with a considerable degree of independence and has the freedom (and is expected) to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of appointment. Thus, the role of Postdoctoral Fellows is clearly differentiated from full-time technical employees. Postdoc appointments are characterized by all of the following conditions: -the appointee was recently (within the last eight years) awarded a Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., Sc.D., M.D.); -the appointment is temporary; -the appointment involves substantially full-time research or scholarship; -the appointment is viewed as preparatory for a full-time academic and/or research career; -the appointee works under the supervision of a faculty member; and -the appointee has the freedom and is expected to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of appointment. -the appointee may teach one accredited course per semester in addition to his or her normal research appointment duties. As an EOE/AA employer and an ADVANCE Institution that strives to create an academic climate in which the dignity of all individuals is respected and maintained, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte encourages applications from all underrepresented groups. The candidate chosen for this position will be required to provide an official transcript of their highest earned degree. The candidate chosen for this position will be subject to a criminal background check."  
Minimum Qualifications:
Applicants must have completed their doctoral degree within the past five years and no later than July 1st of the current year. Applications for study in any discipline represented on campus are welcome. STEM applications are strongly encouraged. Please specify your discipline of interest when applying.
