The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation seeks to further the development of scientific leadership in the field of environmental chemistry.
Through the foundation's annual Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry, a single grant of $120,000 (payable in two $60,000 installments) will be awarded to a principal investigator for the appointment of a postdoctoral fellow in environmental chemistry. Priority will be given to innovative fundamental research in the chemical sciences or engineering related to the environment.
The program is open to all academic and other nonprofit organizations in the United States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories. To be eligible, the principal investigator must have a well-established research effort in environmental science or engineering. Those activities need not be located in a traditional department in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. The postdoctoral fellow usually is not already identified or working in the principal investigator's lab at the time of application.
See the Dreyfus Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
