Postdoctoral Scholars: Opportunities
Cornell Atkinson supports a cohort of creative, exceptionally talented, and highly motivated postdoctoral researchers committed to solving the planet’s most pressing problems facing our planet. We welcome postdoctoral researchers through a variety of avenues: via annual calls for our Cornell Atkinson Postdoctoral Fellowships, via faculty-led projects, and via projects co-led by Cornell faculty and external partners, including scientists at the Environmental Defense Fund.
Regardless of how postdoctoral researchers engage with Cornell Atkinson, each benefits from the Sustainability Leadership Program (SLP). The SLP offers a curated selection of expert-led workshops, seminars, and webinars that bring together postdoctoral researchers from diverse fields to develop critical skills not typically taught in graduate programs. Topics include communicating research to non-expert audiences, working with the media, co-designing transdisciplinary research, policymaking, and understanding the role of the private sector in sustainability efforts.
