The Rowland Institute at Harvard is seeking applications for Rowland Fellowships that commence in the 2018 calendar year. We seek the best young experimentalists in energy science and engineering in the broadest sense. The Rowland Fellowship provides an opportunity to establish an independent program in the rich intellectual environment at Harvard.

Dr. Edwin 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, we 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 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 will start at $72,000 per year, depending on the candidate’s experience.

Basic Qualifications

Fellows must have completed their doctoral degrees prior to starting their term.

Additional Qualifications Special Instructions

Applicants should upload a one-page research proposal (statement of research), and a two-page curriculum vitae (CV) and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent.
