About the Organization

Georgetown University is a private research university in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Founded by Bishop John Carroll in 1789 as Georgetown College, the university has grown to comprise eleven undergraduate and graduate schools, including the Walsh School of Foreign Service, McDonough School of Business, Medical School, Law School, and a campus in Qatar. The school's main campus, on a hill above the Potomac River, is identifiable by its flagship Healy Hall, a National Historic Landmark. The school was founded by and is affiliated with the Society of Jesus, and is the oldest Catholic institution of higher education in the United States, though the majority of students presently are not Catholic.

About the Fellowship

The Earth Commons: Georgetown University's Institute for Environment and Sustainability (Eco Institute) invites applications for postdoctoral academic fellowships for start dates of Fall 2023. ECo Fellows will be expected to conduct interdisciplinary research on various aspects of environment and sustainability challenges and scholarship (e.g., climate and climate change, biodiversity conservation, food and water security, environmental justice). ECo Fellows will also be expected to co-teach with a faculty mentor for one semester. Applicants must propose to conduct research and teach with one or more Earth Commons faculty or affiliated faculty.

Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for two years, although year two is contingent upon successful progress in year one. In accepting the appointment, the fellow is expected to be in residence at Georgetown University except for absences agreed upon with mentor(s).

Applicants should have developed a proposed area of study and teaching project in collaboration with an Earth Commons Affiliate Faculty Member. Applications that are prepared without this will not be considered. Particularly strong proposals will include faculty mentors from multiple departments or schools within Georgetown University.

How to Apply

Application will be in two rounds. For initial submission, candidates are asked to provide an initial submission of a proposal project abstract (details below), CV, and Cover letter. Materials must be submitted by December 15th, 2022. Following initial review, those continuing will then be invited to submit a full proposal in early Spring.
