C3 Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The C3 Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is at the heart of the C3 strategy. Its fellows, coming from two prestigious research institutions:

  • Experience first hand the many advantages of working in a liberal arts college environment
  • Benefit from frequent interaction with senior faculty mentors and with other postdoctoral fellows at the three host colleges.
  • Engage with underrepresented undergraduate students to help them actively consider and be prepared for graduate school.
  • Explore open faculty positions at LADO colleges.


The annual stipend for the position is $44,000/year for two years, with a one-time research allowance of $10,000, and a travel allowance of $3,000/year for two years. The hosting colleges also provide health and dental benefits.

During the period of residence at Connecticut College, Middlebury College or Williams College, the C3 Postdoctoral Fellows are affiliated with an appropriate department or program and are expected to teach two one-semester courses each year, normally one per semester. Fellows are expected to be in residence during the academic year.

The application period for the 2015-2017 fellowship is now closed. Applications for the 2016-2018 fellowship will be accepted in fall 2015.
