Visits are structured to fully simulate the real experience of a faculty job interview and culminate with structured feedback. The visits—which can take place at research intensive universities (R1s) and primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs), depending on the scholar’s career interests—serve a crucial professional development role, providing an insider perspective on the faculty hiring process. They also serve a much needed recruitment and placement role, intentionally connecting underrepresented scholars with potentially well-matched institutions seeking to enhance inclusive excellence in their faculty.
Host Institutions will invite postdoc for a seminar and visit with faculty similar to an academic job interview.
Participating postdocs will have all travel expenses covered, will receive a stipend, and may request childcare support if needed. Funding sponsorship is currently only for US citizens or permanent residents.
- Call for postdoc nominations – July and November
- Host to Postdoc Matching occurs in August and December
- Once a match is made postdoc is notified immediately to schedule seminar in Fall or Spring/Summer
- If a postdoc is not matched during the matching months then, their names will go back into the pool of candidates.
