CHET supports a post-doctoral fellow to develop teaching skills and publish original work at the intersection of environmental history and the history of technology. Candidates for the postdoc have Ph.D. degrees in the history of technology or environmental history and use the fellowship to build knowledge in the complementary discipline. In filling the fellowship, we seek people who traditionally are under-represented in these fields. Environmental historians and historians of technology have begun to address issues of gender, race and class in their work and the field attracts increasing numbers of young people interested in pursuing these themes. The fellow is able to work with several faculty who publish in these related areas. The fellowship is for three years, subject to annual renewal. The appointment is for 12 months, so that the fellow is paid during the summer and free to pursue his or her research. The fellow receives, full faculty benefits and a research budget of $2,000.
