The Earth Commons: Georgetown University’s Institute for Environment and Sustainability (Eco Institute) invites applications for postdoctoral academic fellowships for start dates of Fall 2024. ECo Fellows will be expected to conduct interdisciplinary research on various aspects of environment and sustainability challenges and scholarship (e.g., climate and climate change, biodiversity conservation, food and water security, environmental justice). ECo Fellows will also be expected to co-teach with a faculty mentor for one semester. Applicants must propose to conduct research and teach with one or more Earth Commons faculty or affiliated faculty.
Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for two years, although year two is contingent upon successful progress in year one. In accepting the appointment, the fellow is expected to be in residence at Georgetown University except for absences agreed upon with mentor(s).
Prior to applying, applicants should have developed a proposed area of study and teaching project in collaboration with an Earth Commons Affiliate Faculty Member. Applications that are prepared without this will not be considered. Particularly strong proposals will include faculty mentors from multiple departments or schools within Georgetown University.
