Princeton Andlinger Center Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships

in Energy and the Environment

The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University invites applications for its inaugural cohort of Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellows, with start dates as early as February 2018. This program supports outstanding scholars studying in a field related to energy and the environment with a focus on innovative technological solutions, smart economic analyses, and/or impactful policy solutions to our most pressing energy and environmental challenges. Fellows are expected to be appointed for two years, with renewal after the first year contingent upon satisfactory performance.

Prospective postdoctoral fellows must collaborate with at least one Princeton faculty or senior research staff member working in an energy or environment-related field and articulate a research plan that is aligned with the mission of the Andlinger Center.

This program provides a unique opportunity for postdoctoral fellows to:

  • develop their careers through independent and interdisciplinary research;
  • delve deeply into a research topic related to solutions for energy and environmental challenges or pursue broader inter-disciplinary research combining science, engineering, technology, policy and social dimensions;
  • engage in theoretical and/or experimental research, which is either fundamental or applied in nature;
  • work with one or more research mentors who are experts in their respective fields.

Fellows will be appointed at the rank of postdoctoral research associate and will be provided a competitive salary, standard benefits and an annual allowance of $2,000 to support conference and career development travel.
