The Erb Institute is focused on solving the world’s social and environmental sustainability issues, by challenging and shaping markets and the private sector to become sources of positive solutions, rather than merely focusing on reducing negative impacts. The Institute discerns – through research – and champions – through teaching – a leadership role for business in bettering our world and our society.
There are currently three options for joining the Erb Institute as a Post-Doctoral Fellowship. First, there is our own Erb Post-Doctoral Fellowship program which is described below. Second, there are two University-wide Post-Doctoral Fellowship programs that can be linked to the Erb Institute and which you are encouraged to explore. You may apply to more than one program if you wish; each comes with its own requirements for submission and participation, so please read the descriptions carefully.
