Earth Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Sustainable Development

$61,800

The Earth Institute at Columbia University in New York, NY, seeks
applications from innovative, doctoral candidates or recent Ph.D., M.D.,
J.D., or Sc.D. recipients interested in a broad range of issues in
sustainable development.

The Earth Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship program provides scholars
with the opportunity to acquire and apply the cross-disciplinary
expertise needed to address critical issues of sustainable development
such as food security, energy systems, climate change impacts, poverty
reduction, disease, and environmental degradation. Candidates who have
developed cross-disciplinary approaches during their graduate studies
will find numerous, unique opportunities to engage in programs at the
leading edge of sustainable development research.

Candidates must complete the online application and submit a proposal
for research that would contribute to global, sustainable development.
Candidates may suggest contributing to or expanding on existing Earth
Institute programs or developing new projects that integrate the breadth
of expertise of the Earth Institute.

The deadline to submit an application is November 1, 2016 for
fellowships starting in the fall of 2017. Fellowships are a 24-month
appointment.

The program is open to U.S. and non-U.S. citizens.  All doctoral
requirements must be fulfilled and the degree awarded within 5 years
before the start of the fellowship. Gaps in employment or studies will
be considered on a case-by-case basis. Columbia University is an
