Rowland Fellows Program

The Rowland Fellowship in Energy Science & Engineering provides early career scientists with funding to establish an independent research program. This is an excellent opportunity to pursue new research ideas without the need for external funding, with full institutional support, access to the Institute's outstanding technical and scientific resources, and an opportunity to work in the rich intellectual environment at Harvard.

The Fellowship is an excellent springboard for young scientists because they can establish and build on their own research.  We encourage the pursuit of new ideas and provide a flexible environment that enables changes in research directions as new ideas develop.

The number of Rowland Fellows will average two new appointments each year.  We seek the best young experimentalists in all areas of energy science and engineering.  Fellows must have completed their doctoral degrees prior to starting their term.  We welcome applications from newly conferred doctorates as well as from candidates with postdoctoral experience.  The anticipated start date is during the 2018 calendar year.  The base stipend for Rowland Fellows is $72,000 per annum with increases based on years of experience beyond the Ph.D.
