The USC Society of Fellows is an interdisciplinary community
that supports advanced research by postdoctoral fellows and

Each year the Society admits postdoctoral fellows, who are
appointed for two-year terms during which they pursue research
and teach three courses over four semesters, with one semester
for full-time research. They are expected to reside in the Los
Angeles area during the academic year and to participate in the
scholarly life of the Society, the host department, and the
university. The salary for postdoctoral fellows is $65,000 per
year plus fringe benefits, with an additional research and
travel account of $6,000 per year. For more information
