President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

About the program

The College of Science and Engineering-President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (CSE-PPFP) is a partnership with the University of Minnesota’s Institute for Diversity, Equity, and Advocacy (IDEA) that aims to make CSE more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

Building a more diverse community 

The CSE program, which builds from the existing University of Minnesota President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (UMN PPFP), seeks applicants whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to the University of Minnesota’s Office of Equity and Diversity’s mission, vision and values. 

While the UMN PPFP defines diversity broadly and is open to all applicants who contribute to diversity at the University, we strongly encourage Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) candidates to apply.

CSE cohort

The college will support a CSE-PPFP Community where Fellows engage with one another, access faculty mentoring from diverse perspectives, network with industry and alumni, and emerge as strong candidates for tenure track positions at the University of Minnesota. 

Applications are due Nov. 1, 2021.
