Yale Climate & Energy Institute Postdoctoral Fellowships
The Yale Climate & Energy Institute (YCEI) announces its annual competition for Climate and Energy Postdoctoral Fellowship nominations for 2012. Applicants are sought with interdisciplinary research interests in climate change and energy, ranging from natural sciences and engineering, to social sciences and humanities.
Eligibility and Award:
Individuals who have been awarded the PhD degree within the past three years, or expected by July 2012, are eligible for nomination. Each of the YCEI postdoctoral fellow positions is awarded for one year with an option to renew for a second year, subject to adequate progress and availability of funding. The position provides a stipend ($50,000/yr), base research funds, plus health care benefits and nominal expenses for relocation.
Yale PhD graduates and individuals already in residence at Yale are not encouraged to apply.
All application materials should be submitted via: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/Yale/YCEI. Direct applications are not accepted.
Applicants should contact a faculty sponsor at Yale to identify potential research projects. The candidate should then submit a short (2-3 page) research proposal of interdisciplinary nature with research budgets, a curriculum vita, a list of publications, and a manuscript or reprint of a published work. Applicants should also arrange for four reference letters to be directly submitted through the online portal, one of which should be a letter of nomination sent from their Yale faculty sponsor.
The deadline for receipt of all application materials is January 15, 2012, and decisions will be announced by or shortly after April 5, 2012. Successful candidates are expected to begin their program at Yale on or after July 1, 2012.
Please note: All Yale faculty members affiliated with the Institute are eligible to sponsor YCEI postdocs. Each faculty sponsor is limited to nominate one candidate each year. The faculty sponsor will provide research infrastructure, office space, and research funds beyond the awards contingency fund, if candidate is selected.
Yale University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer; applications from women, minority and international scientists are strongly encouraged.
