Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunities – IGCB at the University of Michigan
The Institute of Global Change Biology (IGCB) at the University of Michigan is seeking another round of exceptional applicants for the IGCB Michigan Postdoctoral Fellows Program. Successful applicants will have the opportunity and support to advance research in global change biology. They will also be able to participate in programs that include career mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities. Applicants with interest across all areas of global change biology are invited to apply. We encourage applicants to contact at least two potential postdoc mentors at Michigan– we highly encourage co-mentoring. Potential mentors and their areas of interest are available here. Application review will begin August 31, 2022. Research in global change biology happens in many departments and units on campus, so Fellows could be jointly based in a number of departments and the IGCB.
Applications must include: (1) A cover letter (1 page); (2) a CV; (3) a research statement including plans for proposed research at the University of Michigan (3 pages maximum) including a short paragraph describing a potential ‘synthesis working group’ the applicant might lead or co-lead, (4) brief statement describing interest in, experience with, and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness (1 page); (5) undergraduate and graduate transcripts (these can be unofficial); (6) names and contact information for three references. Combine all parts of the application into a single PDF and upload the file here. Contact the Chair of the IGCB Postdoctoral committee (Nate Sanders; email@example.com) or IGCB Director (Peter Reich; firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. Note that several members of the IGCB will be at ESA in Montreal and would be excited to chat with prospective applicants.
