Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Institute at Brown for Environment and Society (IBES) seeks candidates for one or more distinguished postdoctoral positions in interdisciplinary environmental science. Appointments will have an expected term of two years starting in July 2016 or soon thereafter. Fellows receive a salary of $50,000, plus benefits and a discretionary fund of $5,000/year in addition to any research funds that may be directed to the project by mentors.
Requirements for the positions include a Ph.D. in an environmentally-related discipline, the intellectual flexibility to reach across fields, ability to take initiative and work independently, and demonstrated interest in interdisciplinary environmental research. Applicants should submit a research proposal based on the guidelines listed online, including identification of a proposed faculty mentor (IBES Fellows are listed at http://www.brown.edu/academics/institute-environment-society/faculty-fellows-0). Proposals will be judged on scientific merit, contribution to IBES thematic foci, and an achievable research plan, given time and budgetary constraints. Letters of support will be requested from proposed mentors, so applicants will benefit from contacting proposed mentors early in the process. Preference will be given to applicants whose research complements (but does not duplicate) ongoing faculty research, and to multi-disciplinary research.
