The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University invites applications for its Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellows program, with start dates as early as February 2020. This program supports outstanding scholars whose research is related to energy and the environment, with a focus on innovative technological solutions, smart economic analyses, and/or impactful policy solutions to our most pressing energy and environmental challenges.
Postdoctoral fellows must collaborate with two or more Princeton faculty or senior researchers within an energy or environment-related field and articulate an interdisciplinary research plan that is aligned with the mission of the Andlinger Center. Candidates with research plans that establish new collaborative links to or between affiliated faculty and researchers listed in the Andlinger Center’s research directory are especially encouraged to apply.
This program provides a unique opportunity for postdoctoral fellows to:
- develop their careers through independent and interdisciplinary research, while working with research mentors who are experts in their fields;
- pursue broad inter-disciplinary research combining science, engineering, technology, policy and social dimensions;
- engage in theoretical and/or experimental research, which is either fundamental or applied in nature.
- Participation in teaching during the fellowship period is not required, however, fellows may offer guest lectures in courses, with guidance from Princeton mentor(s). Interested fellows are encouraged to pursue workshops and training in pedagogy offered through Princeton’s McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.
Fellows are expected to be appointed for two years, with renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance. Fellows will be appointed at the rank of postdoctoral research associate and will be provided a competitive salary, standard benefits and an annual allowance of $2,000 to support conference and career development travel. To be eligible for this fellowship, the successful candidate must have a PhD in a related field within the last three years.
