These research activities need not be located in traditional departments in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. See here for more information.
The Simons Foundation invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships to support research on fundamental problems in marine microbial ecology. The foundation is particularly interested in applicants with training in different fields who want to apply their experience to understanding the role of microorganisms in shaping ocean processes and vice versa, as well as applicants with experience in modeling or theory development.
The CREST CAChE undergraduate research fellows program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain first-hand research experience working with faculty and graduate students associated with the CAChE project. In addition, CAChE Fellows will be enrolled in the CREST Research Internship (for zero credit at no cost) so they can list their research experience on their resume. Fellows can perform research during the academic year or during the summer session. See here for more info!
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in Annapolis, Maryland seeks proposals from highly qualified graduate students interested in conducting team-based socio-environmental synthesis research (i.e. “Graduate Pursuits"). Socio-environmental synthesis focuses on understanding connections between social and biophysical systems and emphasizes the importance of understanding them from a systems perspective. Applications are due May 26, 2017. More information can be found here!
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to study the effects of stream restoration on removal of nutrients and suspended sediments from stream water. The restoration approach, Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance (RSC), involves filling deeply eroded stream channels with a mixture of sand and organic matter and placing rock weirs across the stream channel at intervals to create a series of pools.
