Kendall Fellowship: Protecting Carbon in Boreal Forests

Union of Concerned Scientists

Are you a scientist with an interest in how wildfires in boreal forests affect the global carbon cycle? Committed to using science to help the US meet its commitments under the Paris Agreement? The Union of Concerned Scientists is inviting applications for a post-doctoral fellowship to study fire management and mitigation options for Alaskan forests in a warming world. The feasibility, economics and potential of fire management in US boreal forests is almost entirely unexplored, to date. This exciting and important 2-year fellowship, beginning in October 2018, is based at UCS’s office in Cambridge, MA. Part of the prestigious Kendall Science Fellows program, this project is in close partnership with the Woods Hole Research Center of Falmouth, MA. For more information, please visit

To Apply: Please email a short application, including a cover letter (no more than 2 pages) that describes your interest & qualifications for this project, curriculum vitae, and two references to including “Boreal Forest Kendall Fellowship” in the subject line. Send materials in Word or PDF format only. No phone calls please. Review of applications will begin on April 18, 2018 and will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
