  • The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry is open to all academic and other not-for-profit organizations in the States, Districts, and Territories of the United States of America.
  • Applications are accepted from principal investigators who have well-established research efforts in environmental science or engineering.
  • These research activities need not be located in traditional departments in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. 
  • The postdoctoral fellow is usually not already identified nor in the principal investigator's lab at the time of application. 


  • Applications most likely to be of interest should describe innovative fundamental research in the chemical sciences or engineering related to the environment. The importance of the research should be explained.
  • Examples include but are not limited to the chemistry associated with:
    • the climate,
    • the atmosphere, aquatic or marine settings,
    • toxicology,
    • soil or
    • groundwater.
  • Also of interest are chemistry-related energy research (renewable sources, sequestration, etc.), and new or green approaches to chemical synthesis and processing, both with a clearly stated relation to the environment.


  • Charges associated with indirect costs or institution overhead are not allowed.
