Job Posting: The Environmental Fellows Program at Harvard University
The Environmental Fellows Program at Harvard University’s Center for the Environment is inviting applications for their 2016 cohort. Candidates must have recently attained their doctorate and must have a desire to undertake challenging environmental issues with help from Harvard’s extensive resources.
The Environmental Fellows will be in residence at Harvard for two years working with members of Harvard’s faculty teams. There are six fellowships to be awarded for the Environmental Fellows Program. Fellows have the choice to work with any faculty member from any school or department, but it is crucial that candidates find a Harvard faculty member to host their research. To be eligible for this fellowship, successful candidates must be proposed by their host and with their application must submit a letter of support from the applicant’s host and three letters of reference (one which must be from the candidate’s dissertation advisor). Prospective fellows must have received their doctorate between May 2011 and August 2015, and can have research projects in any discipline. The fellowship provides an annual stipend of $60,000.
Candidates will be selected by their academic and professional success and propose a research project that holds a great significance to environmental problems. The Environmental Fellows Program is looking for fellows from diverse backgrounds with a variety of skills (interdisciplinary research projects are welcomed, but not required) and will complement the other fellows selected for their cohort as well as the fellows from their previous cohort. The applicant will also be selected by the evaluation of their host (Is the host able to provide an office and work environment for the fellow? Does the mentor have the capacity to mentor the fellow and are they genuinely interested in the fellow’s project?)
The application is due January 13, 2015. The application can be found here. Make sure to include your CV (including a list of your publications), a research proposal (maximum five pages, not including references), up to three writing samples or publications.
