Fellowships, Programs, and Grants

Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience, Columbia University

The Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience (PSSN) program at Columbia University invites applications for interdisciplinary postdoctoral positions to begin on July 1, 2022. Selected applicants will join our existing Presidential Scholars and a large group of mentors and affiliated faculty from the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.


PSSN is an innovative program pioneering interdisciplinary research between neuroscience and the arts, social sciences, and humanities. Each Scholar in this highly selective program has proposed a novel cross-disciplinary research project at the intersection of neuroscience and at least one other field, which they will conduct over the course of the three-year fellowship. Presidential Scholars join a vibrant community of postdoctoral researchers and faculty mentors and affiliates from across Columbia University. 


For this application season, PSSN recognizes that there is a growing need for Presidential Scholars who have experience examining questions about diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and decolonization broadly defined. The future of science depends on scholars who can foster new collaborations among neuroscientists and other discipline experts, practitioners, and policymakers around these compelling and urgent societal issues that connect to mind, brain, behavior, and mental health. Priority will be given to applications that align with the goal of supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the program. This can be considered in three overarching ways:


  • Applications include current research and/or research proposals that involve empirical research, the collection of data, or the study of history, evidence, or policy aimed to better understand or combat racism, bias, and inequality, or that are designed to benefit marginalized groups in the U.S. or abroad;
  • Applicants may come from communities which are historically underrepresented or marginalized in neuroscience or in the field or discipline in which they specialize; 
  • Applicants have demonstrated commitment and contributions towards promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion at their current institutions or within their community.


Candidates must hold a doctoral-level degree (PhD, EdD, JD, MD, etc.) in any field by July 1, 2022, and must have received this degree after July 1, 2017. For more information and application instructions please visit the PSSN website. Applications must be submitted by Monday, December 13, 2021, to be included in the first round of reviews. 

2022 Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellows

The Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship programs support outstanding scientists at the Beckman Institute. The programs offer a unique opportunity for selected scholars to engage in a three-year fellowship of interdisciplinary research at the Beckman Institute. This year, we have partnered with the Carle Foundation Hospital to offer an additional Carle-Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship!


For more information and to apply online, please see below:


Applications are due on the Monday before Thanksgiving:

Diverse Pathways in Academia

The Leonard N. Stern School of Business invites talented scholars of color and others underrepresented in business scholarship to participate in our Diverse Pathways in Academia program.  The program’s goal is to share information with doctoral students from groups that are underrepresented among business school faculty about academic careers within business schools.


The program is geared toward scholars in either their penultimate doctoral year or the year prior from the fields of psychology and sociology whose work can be applied to a business field.  We hope to increase the pool of scholars from underrepresented groups that are competitive candidates for open faculty and research positions at top tier business schools.


Many of NYU Stern’s faculty members hold doctorates in fields such as psychology, sociology, statistics, mathematics, computer science and other non-business subjects. They have found a stimulating and satisfying academic community at Stern. This reflects the wide range of opportunities at business schools for individuals with doctorates in other fields. For instance, many psychology and sociology scholars investigate topics of great relevance and importance to management research and practice such as identity, emotions, groups, diversity, person perception, and a wide range of other topics. Similarly, many cognitive psychology and social psychology scholars investigate topics on judgment and decision-making, for example, that are highly relevant to the field of marketing, which includes the study of consumer behavior and decision-making. 


In light of the pandemic, the program will take place via Zoom on January 21, 2022. It will include presentations and panels by faculty members and administrators, along with networking opportunities. Program participants will have the opportunity to engage with Stern’s deans, professors, and administrators to:


  • Learn how their fields of study can be applied to business scholarship;
  • Learn about the scholarly career of the business school faculty;
  • Learn best practices to prepare for the business school faculty recruitment, application, interview and selection process;
  • Learn best practices for cultivating job prospects, how to negotiate job offers, and how to decide whether a position is right for you;
  • Learn about NYU Stern post-doc and faculty positions;
  • Network formally and informally with Stern faculty and graduate students working in areas related to program participants’ respective fields of study. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their current and future research interests with faculty mentors and will receive guidance on the potential fit between their interests and business school environments; and
  • Join Stern’s DPA 2020 alumni and those from NYU’s similar programs for follow-up programming and support.


Scholars participate in the initiative at no cost.


Eligible applicants can apply for Diverse Pathways in Academia here. The deadline for application is October 29, 2021 for the January 21, 2022 program.
