If you are a finishing grad student or postdoc interested in joining our research group, consider applying for the UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2014.
Note that the President’s Postdoc fellowship is a very competitive fellowship that provides salary support for a postdoc for 2 years to work with UC faculty and it also provides some research funds. But, perhaps even more important, these fellowships are highly prized because the fellows are included in the President’s hiring incentive that was setup to allow schools to hire fellows in to tenure track faculty positions at any one of the UC campuses.
Don’t hesitate to let Asmeret (aaberhe(at)ucmerced(dot)edu) know if you have any questions about the fellowship or the hiring incentive.
The PPF program also has a great FAQ page on their website, http://ppfp.ucop.edu/info/how-to-apply/faqs.html#elig2
