23 Aug Postdocs in Humanities for Sustainability (Michigan)
The Graham Sustainability Institute is now accepting applications for the 2016 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 16, 2015. (Applicants must complete an â€œIntent to Applyâ€ by November 2.)
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, 2016. Information on the program and application requirements/process is available here: sustainability.umich.edu/education/dow/postdoctoral. The request for proposals can be found at:graham.umich.edu/media/files/2016-External-Dow-Postdoc-RFP.pdf.
