The Graham Sustainability Institute is now accepting applications for the 2015 cohort of the Dow Postdoctoral Fellows in Sustainability. Please forward this announcement to colleagues and/or prospective postdoctoral fellows.
These fellowships are designed to support a new generation of sustainability scholars who understand the necessity of collaborating across disciplines and sectors to address and solve complex sustainability challenges, with a strong focus on the interface of the social sciences/humanities and the natural/physical/ engineering sciences. We are particularly eager to receive more applications from candidates whose backgrounds are in the social sciences, humanities, or the arts so we can develop a balanced cohort that covers a truly broad range of disciplines that coalesce around issues of sustainability. Applications are being solicited from a national and international pool and are due on November 17, 2014.
Each Dow Postdoctoral Fellow has a two-year appointment in a U-M School/College, Department, or Center and a concurrent two-year appointment as a program fellow, with appointments following traditional academic cycles. The next cohort of postdoctoral fellows will begin their term in September, 2015. Information on the program and application requirements/process is available here:sustainability.umich.edu/education/dow/postdoctoral. The request for proposals and a one-page flier suitable for posting are attached.
Questions about the program and/or application process should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
