Open Positions

Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Program

Now Accepting Applications for 2021

I am pleased to share with you the 2021 call for applications for the University of Missouri’s Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity (PFFFD) Postdoctoral Program. The PFFFD program is designed to develop scholars for tenure-track faculty positions. Applicants should demonstrate how they can contribute to faculty diversity, such as through membership in a group that is historically underrepresented or through other experience. Postdoctoral positions are typically for two years and provide research, teaching, and professional development opportunities.

This call might of interest to you because we are looking for a scholar in the field of technology-driven apparel product development.
