Research Fellowships in Innovation for Sustainability
The Center for Contemporary History and Policy at the Chemical Heritage Foundation invites applications for one-year research fellowships at the post-doctoral or advanced graduate student level to create and cultivate projects in the area of innovation for sustainability. We anticipate hiring 2-3 individuals for these positions.
Drawing on core competencies and programmatic areas in environmental history and policy and studies of materials innovation, CCHP is developing projects that sit at the intersection of sustainability and innovation, both broadly construed. We especially encourage project proposals that cut across institutional sectors and research objects. The following are examples of topics that might be explored:
- Materials Innovation
- Energy (policy, regulation)
- Role of government regulation
- Green manufacturing
- Life-Cycle assessments
- Alternatives development
- Green Chemistry
Projects conducted by fellows in residence will contribute to the programmatic and outreach initiatives of CCHP. These materials are intended to reach audiences outside of academe, and in the past have included: white papers, online exhibits, public symposia, and contributions to our oral history collection.
Fellows will work with CCHP staff while in residence to determine the most appropriate project outcomes as part of our efforts to mentor and train junior scholars to reach new and diverse audiences.
In addition to research related to the proposed project, approximately a third of the fellow’s time will be in support of ongoing activities and projects in CCHP.
Salary for post-doctoral researchers will be $45,000; graduate students will receive $25,000.
Applications from women, minorities, and those with disabilities are particularly welcomed and encouraged.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. For full consideration, applications should be received by June 1, 2011. Application materials should include a cover letter, statement of research interests and proposed project (not to exceed two pages), curriculum vitae, and the names, addresses and phone numbers of three references. Materials can be sent as e-mail attachments (pdf-preferred) to Jody Roberts, Associate Director, Center for Contemporary History and Policy at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
