The application window for the 2019 cohort of Academic Pathways fellows will be closing Nov. 1. The online application is available here.

The Academic Pathways Postdoctoral Fellowship program is a research/mentorship program that is designed to bridge fellows between academic training and entry-level faculty positions. The program focuses on preparing doctoral students with diverse backgrounds and experiences and includes leadership training, grant and manuscript writing and preparation, a multilevel mentoring framework, and substantial “protected time” for the pursuit of each fellow’s academic and scholarly objectives.

The Academic Pathways program is open to all programs of study within the College of Arts and Science, Owen Graduate School of Management, Peabody College of education and human development, Divinity School, School of Engineering, Law School, School of Medicine and School of Nursing.

The Academic Pathways program, administered by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in the Vanderbilt Graduate School, is sponsored by the Office of the Provost with additional funding from the Alliances for Graduate Education and the professoriate of the National Science Foundation. Priority will be given to non-Vanderbilt applications.
