The MIT Climate & Sustainability Consortium (MCSC) Impact Fellowship Program is a postdoctoral opportunity for individuals who want to transcend academia and industry to apply their expertise to near-term change for a more sustainable future. MCSC Impact Fellows will work with MIT researchers and consortium industry members – in collaboration with external organizations and communities – to implement solutions needed for global economic transformation to address the global climate change and sustainability crisis. Throughout the program, Impact Fellows will prepare for leadership positions within the sustainability domain in a wide range of contexts, as well as prepare to drive research that advances breakthrough scalable solutions towards accelerated change.
The MCSC Impact Fellowship Program is looking for creative, highly motivated, and high performing researchers with interests in interdisciplinary training and broad skill development, with a focus and aim on accelerating the necessary global transition in the face of the climate crisis. The program is seeking Fellows who come from a broad range of backgrounds – including engineering, science, social sciences, economics, urban planning, management, and statistics/data science – and welcomes applications from any scholarly field. Candidates, who must have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the start of the fellowship, should be passionate and informed about climate and sustainability, as the projects they will focus on will be related to these key themes, which are central to the consortium.
