The College of Literature Science and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan seeks outstanding scholars in all liberal arts fields whose research/scholarship and/or teaching/mentoring and/or service/engagement will contribute to the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) goals of our institution.
The two-year fellowship provides early career natural scientists, humanists, and social scientists with dedicated research time, mentorship, teaching experience, travel funding, and professional development opportunities to prepare them for possible tenure-track appointments in LSA.
Applications are welcome from any humanities, social science, or natural science field represented in LSA academic departments. Please see website listed below for list of departments/units and other eligibility descriptions.
LSA Collegiate Fellows will receive a starting salary of $60,000 plus benefits. During the two-year term of appointment, the Fellow will participate in the LSA Teaching Academy during their first year, and teach one course a year in their host department. The remainder of the Fellows’ time will be devoted to pursuing research. Each Fellow will also receive career advising from faculty mentor(s) during the fellowship.
The LSA Collegiate Fellows program was launched in 2016 as a major college initiative aimed at recruiting and retaining exceptional early career scholars with demonstrated commitments to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive academic community. The program is administered by U-M’s National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) in conjunction with LSA academic departments.
