Bridge to Faculty, Post-Doctoral Fellowship


Accepting Applications for Bridge to Faculty, Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The University of South Carolina invites applications for postdoctoral fellows as part of the inaugural cohort of the University’s new Bridge to Faculty program.  The Bridge to the Faculty program is designed to recruit underrepresented early-career scholars with the goal of transitioning them to tenure-track faculty members after two years. 

These positions will be awarded for the 2023-2025 academic years to early-career scholars who, if successful during the post-doctoral period, will have the opportunity to transition to tenure track faculty at USC starting in the 2025-2026 academic year.

Bridge to Faculty uses a cohort model, where postdoctoral scholars participate together in meetings and tailored workshops to prepare them to establish a research program and support their ability to pursue grants, to teach and to create productive mentoring relationships.

  • Department of Psychology
  • Department of Social Work
  • Department of Mechanical Engineering
