Where to Begin

Those of you beginning the grant-writing process may want to read the following three items:

GSI & Postdoctoral Appointments

Appointing GSIs at L&S

Read about procedures for the appointment of undergraduate GSIs in the College of Letters & Science. Such appointments are possible under exceptional circumstances when no qualified graduate students are available. Included are updated instructions, forms, links, and contact information. 

Postdoctoral Fellowships

Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at Wesleyan University
Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship, made possible through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to Wesleyan University. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide scholars who have recently completed their Ph.D.’s with free time to further their own work in a cross-disciplinary setting, and to associate with a distinguished faculty.

Resources for Current Students

The Berkeley Edge assists current students with financial support and opportunities for networking and professional development. The Berkeley Edge provides information regarding campus resources and offers students advising and advocacy services.

Faculty Positions Resources

Please note: The links on this page point to the human resources pages at each campus.

Private Secondary Schools

Private secondary schools are an excellent choice for individuals wishing to remain in academia, because they frequently hire faculty members with graduate degrees, including Ph.D.'s.

Notable schools include:

Regional NGO and Non-Profit Opportunities
