Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellowship Program

The Program

Baylor PhD students are eligible to compete for postdoctoral teaching fellowships throughout Baylor University.

The 10-month fellowships will include a salary of at least $40,000, continued access to graduate school travel funds, and the same health benefits as Baylor faculty.  The postdoctoral fellowships will be guaranteed for one year, but may be renewable for up to two years in some departments. 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.

Students should apply online through this link. 

The Benefits

  • Advantageous to our graduate students facing a bleak job market in light of COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Powerful recruiting tool
  • Strong incentive for graduate students to complete their degree 
  • Budget neutral
  • Because it is competitive, allows participating colleges and departments the ability to choose the best applicants to fit current teaching needs
  • Advantageous to undergraduate students, as it provides a deeper pool of well-qualified PhD instructors who are already experienced teaching Baylor students
  • Advantageous to doctoral students, as it prepares new PhDs for the competitive job market and provides temporary postdoctoral job security with a living salary and benefits.   

The Baylor Graduate School is committed to expanding this program for as many PhD students as possible. It is our goal to make postdoctoral fellowships for Baylor PhD students a regular part of our academic landscape.
