Arizona State University — Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowships in Sustainability

The School of Sustainability, part of The College of Global Futures at Arizona State University (ASU), invites applications for up to 2 Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow positions in sustainability that will diversify our School while complementing the faculty’s research strengths. Postdoctoral Fellowships are full-time, fiscal year positions with the aim of conversion to tenure-track faculty positions.

The postdoctoral scholars selected will join a cohort of 10-15 other postdoctoral scholars at ASU as part of the Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The goal of the program is to support the career development of outstanding Ph.D. recipients with great potential for advancing the ASU Charter into a future tenure track appointment at ASU. The program seeks applicants whose professional preparedness, experience, and accomplishments are informed by experiences working with and within groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education in the United States.
