At the University of Notre Dame, the Society of Science Fellows is a Postdoctoral Fellowship Program established by the Dean of the College of Science to support highly motivated and accomplished individuals who represent the best of the next generation of scientists.

These prestigious fellowships are designed for early stage scientists who are bound for research intensive careers in research universities, institutes or industries. The Society Fellows will be initially appointed for two years, receive a stipend corresponding to the NRSA NIH pay scale for postdoctoral fellows and individualized support from College of Science Director of Postdoctoral Studies.
