The College of Arts & Sciences and the Graduate School are pleased to announce the launch of a pilot Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship Program for the academic year 2023-2024. Doctoral research students within the College of Arts & Sciences who complete their doctoral degrees within five active years of enrollment and graduate in 2022-2023 are eligible to compete for 20 one-year teaching fellowships for 2023-2024. The 10-month fellowship will include a salary of $40,000, continued access to graduate school travel funds, and the same health benefits as Baylor faculty. Successful fellows will benefit from a year of postdoctoral job security as well as a year of considerable teaching experience, both which will strengthen their competitiveness on the job market.
The A&S doctoral students who began their doctoral work in 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 and graduate in 2022-2023 (4 or 5 active years after beginning their degree) are eligible. Students who anticipate eligibility should submit a brief letter of intent, which includes the endorsement of their Graduate Program Director, and their C.V. to the Baylor Graduate School by Fall 2022 (details TBA). After confirmation of their 2022-2023 graduation, the Baylor Graduate School will work with the College of A&S and relevant department chairs to offer 20 teaching fellowships to 20 students from the pool of eligible students.
