The Rowland Junior Fellows are selected to perform independent experimental research for five years, with full institutional support and access to the Institute's outstanding technical and scientific resources. The number of Rowland Junior Fellows will equal about ten, with on average two new appointments each year. We seek the best young experimentalists in all areas of science and engineering; research projects in the areas of energy science and neuroscience, broadly defined, are of particular interest. The Rowland Junior Fellowship provides an opportunity to work in the rich intellectual environment at Harvard and the surrounding area, while establishing an independent program.
Applicants should submit a 1-page research proposal, a 2-page curriculum vitae (CV), and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent. The proposal, CV, and letters of recommendation may be either mailed or sent electronically as PDFs to:
