Grants, Fellowships and Awards
Posted on March 19, 2021

Jodi joins former recipients in the Department of Molecular Biology, including Sha Li (2020) and Paola Estrada (2019).

The Presidential Postdoctoral Research Fellows Program is meant to encourage early-career scholars to pursue a career in academia by supporting their postdoctoral work at Princeton University. The program recognizes and supports scholars who can contribute to the University’s diversity, broadly defined, including members of groups that have been historically, and are presently, underrepresented in the academy or in particular disciplines, such as racial and ethnic minorities and women in STEM.

The program aims to appoint an average of twelve postdoctoral fellows/associate research scholars per year, each holding a one-year appointment renewable for a second year.

Candidates must be nominated by a member of the Faculty who will serve as their sponsor or PI. All assistant, associate and full professors may nominate a candidate and serve as their sponsor/PI. A call for nominations, along with the guidelines of the program, is distributed annually and nominations may be submitted on the DoF website during the nomination period. The Faculty Advisory Committee on Diversity is responsible for the review of nominations and the selection of the Fellows.
