WiSE funds are available for partial salary support of postdoctoral fellows, also financially supported by a USC faculty mentor, for a period of two years. Up to four postdoctoral fellowships can be awarded each year to excellent candidates who plan to work with USC faculty members who are known to be good mentors and who have a strong track record of successfully placing students and postdoctoral fellows in academia. Two of the four postdoctoral fellows will be in the Viterbi School of Engineering and two in the USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences. The primary goal of the postdoctoral program is to attract outstanding postdoctoral fellows to USC, and to prepare them for successful academic careers by providing them excellent opportunities and mentoring.
