Unique among postdoctoral fellowships, the Cornell Atkinson Postdoctoral Fellowship funds highly motivated recent PhDs to conduct projects under the mentorship of a Cornell faculty host and an advisor from an external partner organization. Fellows hold academic appointments at Cornell University for two years. Each fellow receives individualized and cohort-level support, including the Sustainability Leadership Program’s workshops in professional development, career strategy, communications training, and collaborative leadership (application information below).
Via the EDF-Cornell Atkinson Postdoctoral Fellowship, Cornell faculty collaborate with scientists at the Environmental Defense Fund to propose a collaborative project to be executed by a postdoctoral fellow. Fellows hold staff appointments at the Environmental Defense Fund for up to two years (read program and application information). As with Cornell Atkinson Postdoctoral Fellows, we invite these fellows to participate in the Sustainability Leadership Program.
