EOAS unites a broad, diverse research community studying Earth’s interior, continents, oceans, atmosphere, and biosphere, their interactions and co-evolution through our planet’s history, and humanity’s dependence and impacts upon these systems. Its postdoctoral fellowship program is intended to catalyze new, interdisciplinary research in the Earth system sciences, carried out in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of at least two EOAS faculty mentors.
EOAS Postdoctoral Fellows Program
When the application period reopens later this year, applicants will be expected to include:
- A cover letter,
- Curriculum vitae including a publication list,
- A 3-page research proposal, and
- Contact information for three referees familiar with their work.
Initial awards are for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year depending upon satisfactory performance and available funding.
Candidates’ proposals should be developed in consultation with their proposed faculty mentors, who should be clearly identified in the proposal. For the EOAS faculty directory, click here. At least one faculty mentor should be affiliated with one of the following School of Environmental and Biological Sciences departments: Ecology, Evolution & Natural Resources; Environmental Sciences; and Marine & Coastal Sciences.
Candidates will be evaluated based on:
- Their past record and letters of reference,
- The ability of their proposed mentors to facilitate their research, and
- The feasibility, intellectual merit, and broader impacts of their proposed research, including the potential for their work to advance cross-disciplinary research at Rutgers within the Earth system sciences.
EOAS is not accepting postdoctoral applications at this time.
