Postdoctoral Fellows Request for Proposals

The University of Michigan’s Dow Sustainability Postdoctoral Fellowships support a new generation of sustainability scholars who understand the necessity of collaborating across disciplines and sectors to address complex sustainability challenges. Fellowships are funded through a mix of support from the Dow program and U-M academic units. The program seeks candidates working on sustainability issues at the interface of the social sciences/humanities and natural/physical/engineering sciences.

External Process

Thank you for your interest in the University of Michigan’s Dow Sustainability Postdoctoral Fellows program. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have decided to suspend the external Post-Doctoral fellow competition for the 2015-2016 year. At this time, we expect the internal program will proceed as usual. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Internal Process

After the external selection process is complete, U-M faculty are invited to nominate qualified candidates to be considered for the program. To be eligible, applicants must have already committed to a postdoc position at U-M. The 2016 RFP will be released in April 2016.
