The Resnick Sustainability Institute has openings for postdoctoral fellowships. The Resnick Sustainability Institute is Caltech’s "studio" for sustainability science, and is dedicated to supporting the cutting-edge science and creative problem solving necessary to change the balance of the world’s sustainability.
The postdoctoral fellowship was created to attract outstanding recent graduates to Caltech working on projects that explore new directions in sustainability focused science and engineering research. The Resnick fellows will have support for up to two years to work on creative, cross-catalytic research that complements the existing work of the Caltech faculty, or that creates new research directions within the mission areas of the Resnick Sustainability Institute.
Eligible candidates will have completed their PhD within five years of the start of the appointment, and must have secured a commitment from one or more Caltech faculty member to serve as a mentor and provide office/lab space for the length of the fellowship. Candidates can come from any country, provided they are proficient in English.
Applications consisting of a research proposal, cover letter, recommendations and CV can be submitted electronically here. Applications are due by October 13th, 2014. Any questions can be directed to email@example.com.
