The University of Missouri’s Research Excellence Program (REP) Program is designed to enhance research activity at the university. The REP program provides funding to selected high performing University of Missouri (MU) faculty to hire postdoctoral scholars to further research productivity and postdoctoral preparation for grant writing and careers in the professoriate. Applicants should demonstrate a strong research record and an interest in applying for early career awards during the REP postdoctoral fellowship. The REP postdoc positions are renewable for up to three years and provide research and professional development opportunities. International scholars are welcome to apply. Start date is negotiable, between January 1 and August 1, 2022.  We are currently accepting applications for postdoctoral scholars to work with one of five University of Missouri REP faculty:
