The James and Mary Pinchot Fellow in Sustainability Studies

Yale University invites applications from emerging scholars and early career faculty for appointment as the James and Mary Pinchot Fellow in Sustainability Studies. The Fellow will display early promise of excellence in research focused on issues of broad environmental significance using perspectives from the humanities, social sciences or biological/physical sciences. We are especially interested in scholars who demonstrate a commitment to excellence through diversity and who would contribute to the diversification of the field of environmental and sustainability studies.

The appointment is available for up to three years. It will be held in the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, but the Fellow will have opportunities to interact with faculty, students, and leadership across the University. Interest in collaborating with other faculty in a strongly interdisciplinary School, as well as with faculty working in cognate departments within Yale College, would be advantageous.

The Pinchot Fellow will be expected to assist with the mentoring of PhD, Masters and undergraduate students, as well as teach one seminar course per year in an area of sustainability studies. Otherwise, the Fellow will have the opportunity to pursue independent research.

QUALIFICATIONS
The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in a related field and will show evidence of exceptional ability in both research and teaching. Personal experience of communities that are underrepresented in the academy, and the capacity to respond in pedagogically productive ways to the learning needs of students from diverse backgrounds, would be an asset.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Review of applications will begin on July 1, 2015 and continue until the Fellowship is awarded.

Prior to applying, candidates should explore the School’s website (http://environment.yale.edu) and consider how their expertise can complement existing strengths within the School and more broadly at Yale.  Please upload: 1) cover letter, 2) curriculum vita, 3) statement of research, 4) statement of teaching interests, and 5) names and contact information of four references via https://apply.interfolio.com/29435.

For more information about the position, contact Assistant Dean Angela Kuhne at fesdeansoffice@yale.edu. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

The fellowship includes a $34,000 annual stipend and tuition. For fellows at the University of Washington, GAIP health insurance is also covered.

We encourage students in all eligible fields to look into this fellowship.

The information session will cover the application process, strategies for successful applications and more details regarding how the fellowship operates. Application deadlines typically range from late October to early November.

Basic eligibility criteria:

* research in an eligible NSF research area (includes several of the social sciences) * US citizens or permanent residents by the application deadline
* students in their first year of graduate study or at the beginning of their second year of graduate study (with some limitations) * students who have not earned a previous graduate degree
* graduating senior undergraduates who plan to apply to and begin graduate student by next fall

The 2016 materials have not yet been published, but we don’t expect significant changes from the last round. 2015 information can be found at: http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?WT.z_pims_id=6201&ods_key=nsf14590

  • at least a 3.7 cumulative UW GPA by the start of Winter 2015; OR
  • participation and good standing in the University Honors Program (Interdisciplinary, Departmental or College Honors) or in UW Tacoma’s Global Honors Program, by the start of Winter 2015. Undergraduates in one of these honors programs DO NOT need to have 3.7 UW GPA or higher to apply, but simply must be in good standing in their respective programs, whatever that might mean.

Bonderman Fellows will undertake international travel on their own for eight months, to six or more countries in two or more major regions of the world. Through solo travel the Fellows will focus on exploration and discovery, learning about the world and themselves in it.

Fellows may not conduct research, pursue an academic project, or participate in a formal program or organization.

To learn more about this opportunity, please attend one of the information sessions listed on the website.

Applications must be submitted by 12:00 pm (noon) January 12, 2015.
