Hutchinson Environmental Postdoctoral Fellowship


The newly established Hutchinson Environmental Program, named in honor of G. Evelyn Hutchinson, the father of modern ecology, is intended to support the environmental priorities identified in Yale’s strategy to advance the sciences.

We seek to attract as many as 10 Hutchinson Environmental Postdoctoral Fellows in the summer and fall of 2020. Cohorts of postdoctoral fellows, representing multiple disciplines, will be centered around the two broad themes outlined below: Environment and Evolution, and Climate and Greenhouse Gases. The Hutchinson Fellows will share space in the Osborn Memorial Laboratories on Yale’s Science Hill. Postdoc cohorts will engage in research and synthesis activities with a network of Yale faculty mentors spanning multiple schools and departments. Priority will be given to applicants whose research incorporates data-driven synthesis, modeling, and/or conceptual unification of knowledge as a means to address these core themes. These are two-year postdoctoral fellowships (contingent on success in year one) with a starting salary of $62,000, plus $10,000 for research and travel. Funds will also be available to support cohort projects, symposia, workshops, and training in science communication.

Deadline January 13
