In consort with the Rising Scholars Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Mellon Foundation, the University of Virginia (UVA) Department of Environmental Sciences seeks to recruit and support postdoctoral scholars from any field within the environmental sciences. These positions will be located in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Fellows will have the opportunity to work in the laboratory of any faculty member within the Department of Environmental Sciences whose research interests align with their own. The Department encourages applicants to reach out to faculty members whose laboratories they may wish to join to discuss the fellowship and potential research opportunities. Scholars will publish papers, present at conferences, and receive guidance on writing grant proposals. The fellowship is intended to prepare postdoctoral research associates for their desired career, and opportunities for teaching and mentoring students will be provided. It is expected that after the initial semester of training, fellows will teach one course per year.

Rising Scholar candidates should have received or will receive their PhD degree between 24 August 2019 and 24 August 2021. Scholars must self-identify as part of a group that is under-represented in the field of environmental sciences. There is no citizenship requirement. Fellows funded under this program will be appointed for two years contingent on a successful annual review.
