Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - Rowland Institute at Harvard

The Rowland Institute at Harvard is seeking applications for Rowland Fellowships that commence in the 2020 calendar year. They seek the best young experimentalists in all fields of science and engineering. The Rowland Fellowship program provides an opportunity to establish an independent program within the rich intellectual environment at Harvard.

Dr. Edwin H. Land founded the Rowland Institute in order to foster high-risk, creative research. In 2002, the Rowland Institute became part of Harvard with the mission of advancing the careers of experimental scientists and engineers at an early career stage. In the tradition of Dr. Land, they are particularly interested in young scholars with the potential to establish a ground-breaking research program in their chosen field.

The Rowland Fellowships are restricted to experimentalists at an early career stage (not more than three years beyond the receipt of their doctorate). Fellowship awardees will receive funding for salary and research expenses and are allocated their own laboratory space. The Rowland Institute also provides scientific and technical support from permanent staff.

The term of the fellowship is for up to five years, with a flexible start date. The stipend for Rowland Fellows is upwards from $73,000 per year, depending on the candidate’s experience. Fellows must have completed their doctoral degree prior to starting their term.

Instructions for applying to the program can be found on the Rowland website.

The application deadline is Friday, August 16, 2019.

Questions about the program should be directed to Dr. Michael M. Burns at:
