Applications for fellow posts in provost's office due April 5

Tenured faculty members are invited to apply for a faculty fellow position in the office of the senior vice president and provost. Fellow positions are part-time for two academic years, beginning this August. Several positions are available.

Faculty fellows will broaden their understanding of and experience in academic administration. Each fellow will develop, implement and lead a faculty initiative related to a priority in the university's academic affairs, such as: orientation and mentoring, diversity and inclusion, research collaboration, or resources and training for department chairs.

Each faculty fellow will be provided part-time release for the 2013-14 and 2014-2015 academic years. B-base faculty fellows also may receive partial support for work carried out in the 2013 and 2014 summers. Fellows will receive the resources needed to carry out their duties from the senior vice president and provost but will retain office space in their home departments.


Applicants should be associate or full professors on full-time appointments and employed at ISU for at least five years.

Applicants should submit the following items in a single document (PDF) to Julie Tarbox in the provost's office:

  • Application form (requires department chair's signature)
  • Letter of interest outlining related experience and career goals
  • Current vita
  • Names of two on-campus references

Applications are due April 5. Fellows will be notified by April 19. Questions about the fellowship program may be directed to associate provost Dawn Bratsch-Prince, 4-6410.
