The Earth Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship program provides innovative postdoctoral scholars with the opportunity to build a foundation in one of the core disciplines represented within the Earth Institute (i.e. social, earth, biological, engineering, and health sciences), while at the same time acquiring the breadth of cross-disciplinary expertise needed to address critical issues related to sustainable development. Specific areas of research include food security, energy systems, climate change impacts, poverty reduction, disease, and environmental degradation.

To learn more about the program and the unique, intellectual surrounding for cross-disciplinary interaction, research and education please visit the EI Fellows page.

To be eligible for the program, candidates must have received their doctoral degrees (Ph.D., M.D. or J.D.) within five years prior to the start of the appointment. All doctoral requirements must be fulfilled and the degree awarded before the start of the fellowship. Gaps in employment or studies will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The program is open to U.S. and non-U.S. citizens.

EI Fellows will receive an annual salary of $61,800. They are also awarded a research stipend of $12,000 over the two-year term for reimbursable expenses related to the fellowship. These funds can be used for relocation and moving expenses, as well as for computer, travel, conference, journal, book, software, equipment, and other research costs.

The application deadline is October 31, 2017 by 5:00 PM EST. For more details and to apply please visit the Earth Institute Fellows page here
