I’d like to announce a postdoc opportunity at Caltech for those on the energy-side of things. The program is run by the Resnick Institute, which is the overarching center for energy research of all forms on campus. It includes the things that we (Steven, Mani, me, etc) do in power systems, as well as lots of other activities across materials, chemistry, physics, aeronautics, etc. So, it’s a great place for interdisciplinary work.
Here’s the blurb about the postdoc fellowship:
About the Resnick Sustainability Institute Post-Doctoral Fellowship: The Resnick fellows will have support for up to two years to work on creative, cross-catalytic research that complements the existing work of the Caltech faculty, or that creates new research directions within the mission areas of the Resnick Sustainability Institute. Eligible candidates will have completed their PhD within five years of the start of the appointment, and should have secured a commitment from one or more Caltech faculty members to serve as a mentor and provide office/lab space for the length of the fellowship. Candidates can come from any country, provided they are proficient in English. Applications consisting of a research proposal, cover letter, recommendations and CV can be submitted through our website: http://resnick.caltech.edu/fellowships-apply.php. The fellowship will provide an annual salary of $65,000 plus benefits, $6,000/year in research budget, and relocation allowance of $3,000. Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that this is not the only postdoc program available for folks that want to join RSRG. We also look for postdocs through the CMI program, and that call will come out later in the fall. Applications for CMI tend to be due in December.
