Applications open: Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment Gerhard R. Andlinger Visiting Fellows

August 5, 2022

The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University invites applications for the Visiting Fellows Program, with start dates as early as September 1, 2023. The visiting fellows program supports distinguished visitors who can enhance the diversity and excellence of intellectual and academic life at the Andlinger Center and strongly support its core mission. We highly encourage applications from individuals who identify as members of groups that are underrepresented in science and engineering.

Applicants must propose a plan of activities to engage with the Andlinger Center and broader Princeton community in ways that will significantly enrich the Center’s research and/or educational programs. This plan should extend beyond simply advancing the visitor’s career development, research, teaching, or advancing a single collaborator’s research. Examples include:

  • Collaborations supporting team research with multiple Andlinger Center jointly appointed or associated faculty and/or research staff members on projects that advance core research areas:
    • built environment, transportation + infrastructure;
    • electricity production, transmission + storage;
    • fuels + chemicals;
    • environmental sensing + remediation;
    • decision + behavioral science, policy + economics.
  • Guest lecturing and/or teaching an Andlinger Center energy studies (ENE) or ENE-cross-listed course, with the goal of having the course material absorbed into a permanent ENE or ENE-cross-listed course that will ensure sustained benefit for Princeton students. Note that all teaching appointments require approval by the Office of the Dean of the Faculty.
  • Presenting and/or organizing a series of talks or workshops designed to augment conversation and expand expertise around key areas of interest to a broad spectrum of Andlinger Center-associated faculty, research staff and students.

Successful applicants can come from a variety of backgrounds, including industry, government, academia, and/or non-governmental organizations, with the key qualification being demonstrated in-depth expertise in energy and environmental issues.

Visitors are not required to teach, but they may seek to teach an approved course in their area of expertise or guest lecture in Andlinger Center courses under course code ENE, or in ENE cross-listed undergraduate and graduate courses taught by Princeton faculty.
