The Future Faculty Fellowship Program, a postdoctoral program, is now accepting applications from candidates in all disciplines represented at Northeastern University.
Northeastern University strives to create a vibrant and diverse community, characterized by collaboration, creativity, and unwavering commitment to excellence. Consistent with Northeastern’s mission, vision, and core values, the objectives of the Future Faculty Fellowship Program are to:
• Encourage and promote excellence and diversity in the pool of future faculty candidates
• Enhance opportunities for academic careers for persons from diverse backgrounds who have demonstrated a commitment to an inclusive faculty and an inclusive academic experience for all students
• Enhance the academic environment of Northeastern by providing opportunities for students and faculty to gain experience in multi-cultural, broadly diverse and inclusive work settings, and research collaborations that improve the capacity of all their members
The Fellowship Program introduces Northeastern’s academic community to postdoctoral researchers who are considering faculty careers and prepares Fellows for possible tenure-track appointments at Northeastern and elsewhere.
The Future Faculty Fellow will:
• Perform basic or applied research of limited scope, appropriate for a one-year appointment
• Maintain the laboratory (if utilized)
• Supervise supporting research staff as relates to the research project
• Present at least one research seminar or colloquium to the Northeastern University community and one at a national or international conference during the academic year of the Fellowship. These presentations may be virtual.

Fellows are encouraged to participate in grant proposal writing as well.
