As part of a continuing commitment to building a culturally diverse
intellectual community and advancing scholars from underrepresented groups in
higher education, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Carolina
Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity (CPPFD,
https://research.unc.edu/carolina-postdocs/) is pleased to offer postdoctoral
research appointments for a period of two years. The purpose of CPPFD is to
develop scholars from underrepresented groups for possible tenure track
appointments at the University of North Carolina and other research
universities. Postdoctoral scholars will be engaged full-time in research and
may teach only one course per fiscal year. This program is funded by the State
of North Carolina.

The CPPFD is a nationally recognized and extremely competitive program. We
typically receive more than 750 applications per year and typically fund 4-5
new postdoctoral researchers per year.
