Postdoctoral Fellowships and Professional Development

The Collaborative will provide scholarly and professional development opportunities for scholars and students whose research focuses on racism, racial equity, and racial justice.

Public Engagement and Impact

The Anti-Racism Collaborative will partner with the Center for Academic Innovation to provide programming for anti-racism scholars to explore diverse forms of public engagement. This might include special experiences including events, workshops and other learning opportunities, and space and time to network with other like-minded faculty across disciplines.

Anti-Racism Collaborative Postdoctoral Fellows

Through the Anti-Racism Collaborative, the NCID will partner with U-M diversity scholars and academic units to offer postdoctoral fellowships for early career scholars whose research/scholarship focuses on racism, racial equity, and/or racial justice. Priority will be given to applicants for whom there is strong potential for research collaboration with current projects led by U-M faculty and/or U-M academic units. Applications will require a strong development and mentoring plan with U-M faculty mentor(s). The NCID currently hosts a number of postdoctoral fellows whose research/scholarship focuses on social inequality and justice, who will participate in a broader scholarly and learning community with new Anti-Racism Collaborative Fellows. Fellows will be provided a variety of professional development and networking opportunities to support their scholarly and professional growth and development.
