The Earth Commons

ECo Fellows

Earth Commons Fellowships enable interdisciplinary research, education and action on various aspects of environment and sustainability challenges and scholarship.

Post-doctoral fellows

The Earth Commons Academic Postdoctoral Fellowship (ECo Fellows) enables interdisciplinary research on various aspects of environment and sustainability challenges and scholarship (e.g., climate and climate change, biodiversity conservation, food and water security, environmental justice). ECo Fellows are also expected to co-teach with a faculty mentor for one semester. Applications are closed for the year.

Applicants must propose to conduct research and teach with one or more Earth Commons Affiliated Faculty and/or Faculty Advisors. It is strongly recommended that applicants reach out to prospective faculty to develop the proposed area of study. Particularly strong proposals will include faculty mentors from multiple departments or schools within Georgetown University.

Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for two years, although year two is contingent upon successful progress in year one. In accepting the appointment, the fellow is expected to be in residence at Georgetown University except for absences agreed upon with mentor(s). 

Faculty Fellows

The ECo Faculty Fellowship supports Georgetown faculty actively pursuing inter- or cross-disciplinary work around the environment and sustainability. Faculty Fellows are engaged in shared, long-term projects for multiple years.

Post-baccalaureate Fellows

ECo Post-baccaulaurete Fellows are Georgetown alumni designing and implementing environmental and sustainability projects on campus and in our local and global communities. Fellows work in collaboration with faculty and other centers at the University and further our university’s mission to care for our common home. Fellowships have been awarded for the 2022-2023 academic year.
