Clemson Research Fellows

The Clemson Research Fellows program expands Clemson University’s research capacity by providing grants to assist regular faculty, academic departments, colleges, centers, and institutes in the hiring and training of qualified new research faculty and postdoctoral researchers. Researchers may be hired to promote collaborative and creative interdisciplinary activities, research and demonstration projects with the goal of pursuing a large funding opportunity, building a major research program or a research center. Clemson Research Fellows grants may run for a maximum of two years in length. At the end of the two-year period, the researcher position is expected to be fully supported by externally funded grants and/or the department(s).
