Bryn Mawr College
Keck Postdoctoral Research/Teaching Fellowships in Sciences/Mathematics

Bryn Mawr College, with support from the W.M. Keck Foundation, will initiate in academic year 2001-2002 a new program of postdoctoral research/teaching fellowships in science/mathematics. The program will provide support for young scientists emerging from graduate programs with a traditional focus on research who want as well to make a strong commitment to teaching and to the mutually reinforcing benefits of teaching and research.

The undergraduate and graduate programs in the sciences/mathematics at Bryn Mawr College have a long history of high achievement in both teaching and research. Keck Postdoctoral Fellows will join this community for terms of three years, during which they will conduct research and teach with strong faculty mentorship, and participate in programs aimed at further developing, for themselves and for the academic community at large, a respected and visible national community of "scientist/teachers".

The first two Fellows will begin their terms in Fall, 2001, with two additional Fellows to be appointed in Fall, 2002. During the initial development phase, additional appointments will be made to maintain a program size of four Fellows. Fellowships will include a stipend of $40,000 a year, together with annual allowances of $5,000 for supplies and $1,000 for travel.

Fellowship opportunities are available in a wide array of areas within sciences/mathematics, as indicated on a list of College faculty offering Fellowship sponsorships. Interested young scientists/mathematicians should review this list and available additional information, and directly contact faculty with whom they would like to work.

With the endorsement of a faculty sponsor (or sponsors), applicants should submit to the Keck Fellowship Committee, Office of the Provost, Bryn Mawr College, 101 North Merion Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010

Review of applications will begin in January 2001, with selected applicants being invited to visit the campus and present seminars in February. Final decisions about the appointment of two Fellows for September 2001 will be made early in March.

Bryn Mawr College is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. The College is a diverse, multicultural, and international community, and particularly encourages applications from women and members of under-represented groups.
