The Provost’s Postdoctoral Research Scientist and Scholar Program, which supports the recruitment of outstanding postdoctoral scholars from underrepresented groups, is part of the new Inclusive Faculty Pathways Initiative in the Office of the Provost. This program is designed to recruit emerging scholars and nurture them in the early years of their careers by supporting and building pipeline efforts across the University, promoting equity-based graduate admissions, and working with partner offices to improve the climate and support students in their pursuit of academic careers.
