Postdoctoral researchers at the Erb Institute are global in their approach, think in terms of systems and adopt an interdisciplinary perspective on sustainability. Rather than limiting our search to individuals who represent a particular discipline, we seek scholars whose research and academic interests sit—from a contextual perspective—at the inter- and transdisciplinary nexus between broad sustainability and the private sector.

The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and Application

The application cycle is now open.

From November 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018 we will be soliciting applications for two post-doctoral fellow appointments.

Each year we accept applications from talented and creative early-career scholars who will conduct high-quality research, participate in seeking extramural funding related to their research, write jointly authored and peer-reviewed articles, and contribute content for a broad array of audiences under the Erb Institute’s thought leadership banner.  This year, in partnership with the Center for Positive Organizations, we are also seeking a post-doctoral scholar to help develop and lead a two-year research effort focusing on business sustainability change agents.

A PhD or comparable degree is a prerequisite for both appointments.
