The Harvard University Environmental Fellows Program, administered by the Center for the Environment, enables recent doctorate recipients to use and expand Harvard’s resources to tackle complex environmental problems. Environmental Fellows work for two years with Harvard faculty members in any school or department to create new knowledge, while also strengthening connections across the University’s academic disciplines. Fellows will conduct research in various disciplines of environmental scholarship. They convene frequently in a series of dinners and meetings with faculty to foster intellectual and social connections across disciplines and departments. They form a community of researchers with diverse backgrounds united by intellectual curiosity, top-quality scholarship, and a drive to understand the most important environmental challenges facing society.
The Environmental Fellows Program is open to anyone with a doctorate or comparable terminal degree awarded between May 2012 and August 2016. Past Fellows have gone on to positions at leading academic institutions and in industry, government, and the non-profit sector.
The fellowships include a salary of $62,000 per year, employee health insurance eligibility and other benefits, up to $2,500 reimbursement for moving expenses, and a $2,500 allowance for travel and other professional expenses.
Complete details are available at the Harvard Environmental Fellows Program website. Questions about the application process can be directed to Jean Gauthier. Applications are due on January 13, 2016.
