ENRP offers fellowships for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral researchers for one year, with a possibility for renewal.
Applicants for pre-doctoral fellowships must have passed general examinations prior to appointment and have made significant progress on their dissertations. Applications for post-doctoral research fellowships are welcome from recent recipients of the PhD or equivalent degree, university faculty members, and employees of government, military, international, humanitarian, and private research institutions that have appropriate professional experience. ENRP seeks applicants from a wide range of disciplinary and multi-disciplinary fields, and those holding a PhD in engineering or in the natural sciences are strongly encouraged to apply. ENRP also encourages applications from women, minorities, and citizens of all countries.
Fellows are expected to devote some portion of their time to collaborative endeavors, as arranged by the appropriate program or project director. Pre-doctoral fellows are expected to contribute to the Program's research activities, as well as work on—and ideally complete—their doctoral dissertations. Post-doctoral research fellows are expected to complete a book, monograph, or other significant publication during their period of residence. All fellows are expected to be in residence for the duration of their fellowship.
Applications are welcome for fellowships in the following research areas for the 2017–2018 academic year:
U.S. Climate Policy
Fellows will contribute to ongoing research projects on climate change related issues, including, but not limited to climate mitigation policy, land use and carbon sinks, and climate change adaptation. Applications from scholars working on advancing U.S. climate and energy policy with a focus on state and federal government policy interaction are also welcome.
Potential fellows should apply through the Belfer Center's regular fellowship process to one of the research areas specified above and should highlight research interests that are relevant to ENRP.
The 2017-2018 application period is now open and will close on January 15, 2017. Recommendations will be due on Wednesday, February 1, 2017. Decisions will be announced by March 31, 2017.
