SUNY PRODiG Fellowship Consortium - Call for Applications

The SUNY PRODiG Fellowship Consortium represents a collaborative effort of the thirteen comprehensive colleges in the SUNY system and is a unique initiative to increase faculty diversity on our campuses.

Eligible candidates for this two-year fellowship program include late-stage ABDs or post-docs who are underrepresented minorities faculty in general and women faculty of all races in STEM fields.

The focus of the collaborative is to introduce early-career diverse faculty to opportunities at a comprehensive college, and to provide outstanding mentorship and support to increase future success and retention as faculty. The program will provide intentional support toward degree completion, teaching experience in the individual’s field of expertise, and faculty development at one of the SUNY comprehensive colleges.

PRODiG Fellows will receive a two-year non-renewable contract, travel allowances, summer research stipends, moving expenses, and reduced teaching load. Annual compensation is competitive. Fellows will be paired with a campus senior faculty member to help facilitate integration and support, and will be a part of a larger cohort of PRODiG Fellows across the SUNY system who will meet (both face-to-face and virtually) throughout the two-year fellowship. The fellowship is open to a wide range of fields.
