Train. Develop. Mentor.
The Ohio State University President’s Postdoctoral Scholars Program (PPSP), recognizes highly-qualified postdoctoral trainees who will become leaders in their fields. This program supports the scholarly efforts and training of terminal degree holders (PhD and others) who wish to pursue careers in research and creative inquiry, as well as providing professional development and networking opportunities. This program includes salary support and full benefits (health insurance, tuition assistance, and paid leave) provided by the Office of the President and the scholar’s faculty mentor/sponsor college for up to two years. PPSP scholars also receive funds to support research, creative expression, and professional development-related expenses.
Eligibility: U.S. citizens and permanent residents as well as international scholars are eligible to apply. Candidates must have obtained their terminal degree no more than 2 years prior to the nomination deadline. Individuals must be able to start their postdoctoral position no later than January 1, 2024.
