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, will experience first hand the many advantages of working in a liberal arts college environment. They will benefit from frequent interaction with senior faculty mentors and with other postdoctoral fellows at the three host colleges. The fellows will engage with underrepresented undergraduate students to help them actively consider and be prepared for graduate school. Each fellow will be encouraged to explore open faculty positions at all 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 college will also provide health and dental benefits.

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

Applications for the 2015-2017 fellowships will open on October 1, 2014. The deadline is November 14, 2014.
