The Fellows Program is the premier program in the world for those dedicated to a better understanding of critical scientific and social issues related to meeting global sustainable development goals. Post-doctoral fellows will join multidisciplinary teams of outstanding, committed scientists from a diverse group of Earth Institute research units and departments across Columbia University.
Learning through Ecology and Environmental Field Studies (LEEFS) is a program of the Earth Institute, Columbia University, that creates partnerships between Columbia graduate students and science teachers in New York City public schools. Columbia graduate students receive National Science Foundation GK-12 Fellowships that include a stipend and tuition assistance. In return, they work in one of our partnering schools, enhancing science education for grades 6-12. Teachers in the program receive a stipend and professional development through the Center for Environmental Research and Conservation (CERC), the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO), or the Columbia Summer Research Program (CSRP).
Funded by the NSF ADVANCE Program, the Marie Tharp Fellowship is awarded to outstanding women scientists. The three-month fellowship can be taken at any of the research units or departments affiliated with the Earth Institute.
The goal of the IGERT Joint Fellowship Program in Applied Mathematics and the Earth and Environmental Sciences is to train Ph.D. scientists with both exceptionally strong mathematical skills and a deep understanding of the important scientific problems in the earth and environmental science.
