The University of Southern California (USC) is now accepting applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships for Sustainability Solutions.
This unique, high-visibility postdoctoral fellowship program is part of Assignment: Earth, the USC campus-wide sustainability framework, a priority initiative of USC President Carol Folt.
The purpose of this fellowship is to advance the capacities of early-career scholars and researchers to conduct interdisciplinary research on sustainability challenges in one or more of the following areas:
- human health and well-being;
- infrastructure and the built environment;
- natural environment and ecosystem services;
- communications, policy and institutions; and
- risk analysis and economic impacts.
The fellowships are typically 2-year appointments, with an anticipated start date between January and August 2023, and the potential of applying for a 3rd year as appropriate. Fellows will receive an annual salary of $75-80k (depending on stage of training), up to $3k for relocation expenses, a competitive benefits package, and $7k per year for research expenses, conference travel, and publication costs.
Candidates must have earned a doctoral degree within the previous five years in a relevant field of study prior to the start of the appointment.
