Hi All:

This is a big new initiative to support, recruit, and retain diverse
faculty - one approach to solving the so-called 'pipeline problem'. This
is open to all disciplines, therefore appropriate to folks on this list.

Please circulate this info widely.

SUNY PRODiG Fellowship Application
Promoting Recruitment, Opportunity, Diversity, Inclusion and Growth
across the SUNY Comprehensive Sector

The Comprehensive Colleges of the State University of New York system
(SUNY) invite applications for the PRODiG Pre/Post-Doctoral Fellowship.
The SUNY PRODiG Fellowship Consortia represents a collaborative effort
of the thirteen comprehensive colleges in the SUNY system (see below).
Eligible candidates for this two-year program include late-stage ABDs or
post-docs who are underrepresented minorities faculty in general and
women faculty of all races in STEM fields.

The focus of the collaborative is to introduce early-career diverse
faculty to opportunities at a comprehensive college, and will provide
outstanding mentorship and support to increase future success and
retention as faculty.  The program will provide intentional support
toward degree completion, teaching experience in the individual’s field
of expertise, and faculty development at one of the SUNY comprehensive

PRODiG Fellows will receive a two-year non-renewable contract, travel
allowances, summer research stipends, moving expenses, and reduced
teaching load. Annual compensation is competitive. Fellows will be
paired with a campus senior faculty member to help facilitate
integration and support, and will be a part of a larger cohort of PRODiG
Fellows across the SUNY system who will meet (both face-to-face and
virtually) throughout the two-year fellowship.  The fellowship is open
to a wide range of fields.

Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited doctoral program in the
U.S. or have completed an accredited doctoral program, and be authorized
to work in the U.S. In order to be eligible, the applicant must have an
approved dissertation proposal and have advanced to candidate status at
their home institution (or have completed their dissertation).
Post-doctoral applicants are also encouraged. Successful candidates will
show evidence of outstanding academic achievement and promise as
teachers and scholars. Candidates should have a capacity to respond in
pedagogically productive ways to the learning needs of diverse students
attending a comprehensive college.

Applicants should submit a current C.V. and letter of intent describing
the applicant's interest in teaching at a comprehensive college; a
letter from the dissertation advisor commenting on the applicant’s
performance, potential, and expected time to degree; and a transcript.
Applicants should review the websites below for academic programs and
campus locations. Within their letter of intent, applicants should
include three to five campus preferences.

Application review will begin January 27 for rolling admissions.
Additional information will be provided upon hire, including details on
a scheduled retreat in June/July 2020.
