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 will work for two years with Harvard faculty members in any school or department while also strengthening connections across the University’s academic disciplines.
The Harvard University Center for the Environment expects to award approximately six fellowships for the 2022 cohort. The Center will organize a co-curricular program to ensure that the fellows get to know each other and each other’s work. All fellows will attend biweekly dinners with their colleagues, faculty members, and guests.
- Candidates for 2022 Environmental Fellowships should have received their terminal degree between May 2018 and August 2022. (Fellows must have filed their dissertation before starting their appointment in September 2022.)
- Candidates with a doctorate or equivalent in any field are eligible, and they may propose research projects in any discipline. Applicants without a Ph.D. may apply if they have studied in fields where the Ph.D. is not the typical terminal degree. All successful candidates will be able to demonstrate experience performing scholarly research.
- Candidates may have received their degrees at any university in the world. Foreign nationals are eligible for fellowships, though study at Harvard requires proficiency in English.
- The fellowship includes a salary of $80,000 per year, employee health insurance eligibility, up to $2,500 reimbursement for relocation expenses and a $2,500 annual allowance for travel and other professional expenses.
Application deadline is January 10, 2022.
