The HUCE Environmental Fellows Program awards two-year postdoctoral fellowships to outstanding young scholars in any environment-related discipline. This year the cohort will represent research areas in history, engineering and public policy, comparative literature, earth and planetary science and earth system sciences, chemistry, and climate change adaptation.

The Harvard University Center for the Environment created the Environmental Fellows program to enable recent doctorate recipients to use and expand Harvard’s extraordinary resources to tackle complex environmental problems. The 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.

The Award

The Center will award four to six two-year fellowships this coming spring with a start date in September 2019. The fellowships pay a salary of $68,000 per year with benefits eligibility; $2,500 each year for professional/research expenses; and a one-time stipend for relocation expenses.

The Center asks applicants to propose a research program and to secure a commitment from one or more Harvard faculty members to host their work.

The Center organizes a co-curricular program to ensure that the fellows get to know each other and each other’s work.  All fellows join in biweekly dinners along with Harvard faculty and a speaker also from amongst the Harvard faculty.

More information is available at the Harvard Environmental Fellows Program website. Please direct any questions to James Clem, HUCE managing director. Applications are due on January 16, 2019.
