The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation is inviting applications for its Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry, which provides a principal investigator with an award of $120,000 over two years to appoint a postdoctoral fellow in environmental chemistry.
The program aims to support innovative fundamental research in the chemical sciences or engineering related to the environment. Examples include but are not limited to the chemistry associated with the climate, the atmosphere, aquatic or marine settings, toxicology, soil, or groundwater. Also of interest are chemistry-related energy research (renewable sources, sequestration, etc.), and new or green approaches to chemical synthesis and processing, both with a clearly stated relation to the environment.
The program is open to all academic and other not-for-profit organizations in the states, districts, and territories of the United States. Applications are accepted from principal investigators who have well-established research efforts in environmental science or engineering. These research activities need not be located in traditional departments in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. The postdoctoral fellow is usually not already identified or working in the principal investigator's lab at the time of application.
See the Dreyfus Foundation for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
