Postdoctoral Positions

Tarbutton Interdisciplinary Science Fellowships

Applications are invited for the inaugural endowed Tarbutton Interdisciplinary Science Fellowships at Emory University. The Fellowships will support outstanding postdoctoral scientists in fields such as physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science. Preference will be given to candidates who build on multiple disciplines in their research. This year, we are especially excited to support theoretical and computational research. Each Fellowship will be for up to three years. Each Fellow will choose one or more faculty mentors from Emory College of Arts and Sciences (ECAS), who will be committed to the Fellow's professional growth in all aspects of academic training, including research and pedagogy. The Fellowship will provide 50% stipend support and an independent research fund, with the rest of the stipend and research funding provided by the faculty mentor(s). Fellows will have access to Emory’s world-class scientific research infrastructure, including the resources provided by ECAS, the School of Medicine and Rollins School of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and the National Primate Research Center (both located on Emory campus), and the nearby Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State University

Applicants must have a PhD by their intended start date, which must be no later than January 2024. Preference will be given to early-career applicants who will have received their PhD less than one year prior to their start date. Successful applicants will have demonstrated creativity and scientific depth in a relevant field, and a compelling case that Emory is the right place for the next step in their training. Applicants are encouraged to reach out to potential mentors among ECAS science faculty before submitting their application. Applications should be sent to and comprise a CV, contact information for three references, and a brief statement of research experience and interests, including proposed faculty mentor(s). The statement should also describe any notable actions the applicant may have taken or plans to take to contribute to diversity and inclusion. Review of applications will start on Nov 1st, 2022 and will continue until the positions are filled. 

Emory University is an AA/EEO employer.
