Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ecology and Society

We seek applicants for an independent postdoctoral fellowship affiliated with the Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems, and Society (EEES) Graduate Program at Dartmouth College. EEES is a diverse community of scholars who conduct innovative research in the natural sciences and interdisciplinary environmental studies, including ecology, evolution, anthropology, economics, governance, and geography. We aim to recruit an environmental social scientist whose work is synergistic with our program’s strong emphasis on ecology and ecosystem science.


High quality candidates will have a strong background in interdisciplinary research, advanced analytical skills, and an interest in undergraduate and graduate level education. More specifically, superior candidates will have research interests that complement the program’s existing strengths in ecological economics, political ecology, and the investigation of social-ecological systems. In addition to developing innovative research projects, postdoctoral fellows are expected to enhance graduate student education and professional development through a seminar series or working group dedicated to developing a collaborative research product.


The ideal candidate will be a strong contributing member of the vibrant EEES community at Dartmouth and foster productive discourse both within and beyond the program.  Applicants should identify one or more potential faculty mentors from the EEES program.  (program website:
