Dear FSU Environmental Law Graduating Students, LLM, and recent graduates,

The University of Southern California (USC) is launching is launching two-year interdisciplinary fellowships in sustainability research -- and the interdisciplinary can include law and related fields. The program aims to accelerate sustainability research; train future leaders in academia, government and non-governmental organizations, and industry; and support discovery, evaluation, and implementation of innovative solutions to sustainability problems. This postdoctoral fellowship seeks to advance the capacities of early-career scholars and researchers to conduct interdisciplinary research on sustainability problems. An interdisciplinary and diverse cohort of fellows will address challenges in one or more of the following areas:

  *   human health and well-being;
  *   infrastructure and the built environment;
  *   natural environment and ecosystem services;
  *   communications, policy, and institutions;
  *   risk analysis and economic impacts.
Each fellow will be mentored by two or more USC faculty members from different disciplines. In addition to their primary affiliation with their chosen research groups, each fellow will dedicate ~20% of their time to programmatic activities with their cohort and other members of the campus sustainability community.  Activities include seminars, weekly 'coffee hours', an annual retreat, and other team and knowledge-building opportunities. The USC initiative on sustainability<https://urldefense.com/v3/__http:/sustainability.usc.edu/__;!!PhOWcWs!yY0VEAjJF8PvQOj_Vu5g6ZpskaJ7aC6jVWkgieMxB4mBgGfsYJuA1unMJw1HE9nP0_sy15cudFyxaWeVVo-FsNpEjw$> was launched in 2019 by President Carol Folt with the establishment of the Presidential Working Group (PWG<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/www.president.usc.edu/sustainability-pwg/__;!!PhOWcWs!yY0VEAjJF8PvQOj_Vu5g6ZpskaJ7aC6jVWkgieMxB4mBgGfsYJuA1unMJw1HE9nP0_sy15cudFyxaWeVVo8zZdxcQg$>) on Sustainability in Education, Research and Operations. The task of the PWG was to explore approaches for USC to become a model for sustainability in its education, research, and campus operations. The Postdoctoral fellowship program is one of the first elements of a university-wide strategy to achieve pathbreaking discoveries towards sustainability.

Candidates must have earned a doctoral degree (e.g., Ph.D., Sc.D., M.D., J.D.) within the previous five years in a relevant field of study prior to the start of the appointment.
