The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society invites applications for its 2016–17 cohort of postdoctoral and senior fellows. The fellowship program is designed to bring together excellent scholars who are working in environmental history and related disciplines.
The center will award fellowships to scholars from a variety of countries and disciplines. Applicants’ research and writing should pertain to the central theme of the RCC: transformations in environment and society. Research at the RCC is concerned with questions of the interrelationship between environmental and social changes, and in particular the reasons—social, political, cultural, and environmental factors—for these transformations.
The RCC awards five types of fellowships:
- Carson Writing Fellowships
- Interdisciplinary Writing Fellowships
- Outreach Fellowships
- Short-term Fellowships
- Alumni Fellowships
