The National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) represents a commitment by the University of Michigan to affirm the central value of institutional diversity to the public mission of US colleges and universities.

They support  NCID Postdoctoral Fellowship and its sophisticated application to the challenges associated with meeting this commitment spanning the recruitment and selection of students and faculty, assuring campus climates that promote success, preparing and inspiring leaders, and reframing the complicated discourse that surrounds institutional diversity in a changing, politically charged national landscape.


‣ Guided by the mission of the National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID), the Postdoctoral Fellows and Scholars Program is designed to promote the outstanding work of early career diversity scholars throughout the nation. 

‣ This includes those who have recently earned a PhD, as well as those who currently hold early career tenure-track positions. 

‣ While looking for alignment with NCID’s priorities and strategies, a successful candidate will also be highly competitive for a tenure-track faculty position at the University of Michigan or a peer institution.
