Fellowship Terms

Northeastern will provide placement in at least one host laboratory/academic program/department at Northeastern University to the Fellow in their area of academic interest/specialty.

Northeastern will provide at least one Northeastern faculty member who is committed to serving as a mentor to the Fellow.

Northeastern will appoint each Future Faculty Fellow for a one-year, 12-month term. Fellows whose appointment begins during the 2021-2022 academic year will receive a 12-month salary of $60,000, plus health benefits. Fellows will receive $5,000 towards conference travel and other research-related expenses.

The Fellow may be interviewed for a faculty appointment at Northeastern University if the department has an open faculty position and the search committee selects them for an interview. A Fellow is not required to accept a post-fellowship faculty appointment as a condition of the Fellowship. Northeastern University also is not obligated to offer any Fellow a faculty appointment upon completion of their fellowship. However, the Fellowship program is intended as a step toward a Fellow’s development as a potential faculty member at Northeastern or another institution of higher education.
