Postdoctoral Search: Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship

Apply for our open Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Department of Horticultural Science at the University of Minnesota is currently seeking a:

Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow

Faculty in the Department of Horticultural Science are seeking scholars with the potential to bring to their research and teaching the perspective that comes from their experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education. We are seeking scholars whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity at the University of Minnesota and beyond. The successful candidate filling the postdoctoral fellow position may be considered for a tenure track position.
Research areas could include plant breeding, quantitative and population genetics, metabolomics, biochemistry, computational biology, germplasm collection, organic and landscape horticulture, and community-engaged research focusing on horticultural plants. We are looking for an applicant whose interests complement the work currently taking place in the department yet expand the scope or framework of horticultural science. 
The applicant will spend 1-2 years conducting research and service that furthers the development of their career skills or allows them opportunities to learn new research techniques. Applicants will be trained by and work in conjunction with a faculty mentor who determines the training agenda before potentially moving to an independent faculty position. Applicants should consider both their short-term and long-term vision for their own research enterprise. 

The Department of Horticultural Science continues to create an environment of teaching, research and outreach that serves all communities and stakeholders with respect and dignity. We strive to create an inclusive and supportive culture that promotes professional excellence in horticultural science and actively pursue opportunities to increase our adoption of inclusive behaviors.

Interested applicants should contact Kelsey Bogdanovich ([email protected]) for more information and directions on how to apply.
