Postdoctoral Fellows

Future Leaders

An Overview of the Postdoctoral Program

Postdoctoral researchers participate in a variety of EOAS projects and are a crucial component of an active research and learning environment at Rutgers, as well as an important resource for faculty and graduate students.

The EOAS institute sponsors five Postdoctoral Fellows that participate in transdisciplinary EOAS research. These Fellowships are offered yearly on a competitive basis and potential applicants should contact EAOS faculty directly to discuss possible projects. Applicants and their prospective faculty host/hosts must submit a short proposal outlining the research that would be conducted by the candidate while in residence at Rutgers.

Know Before You Apply

How We Select EOAS Postdoctoral Fellows

An EOAS Post-Doctoral Candidate Review Committee comprised of a diverse collection of EOAS Faculty reviews the potential Fellow’s proposal along with its accompanying application and awards a Fellowship based on several weighting factors, including the novelty of the research and its transdisciplinary component. Projects involving faculty in more than one EOAS program are also given priority.
