Science Fellows in Frontiers of Science
Frontiers of Science is a one-semester course that integrates modern science into the Core Curriculum of Columbia College in order to challenge the way students think about science, introduce exciting scientific ideas and inculcate scientific habits of mind. The program will appoint a number of post-doctoral fellows in the natural sciences for the academic year 2013-2014. We invite applications from qualified candidates who have received or will expect to receive the Ph.D. between
1 January 2009 and 1 July 2013. Columbia Science Fellows hold the rank of Lecturer in Discipline in an appropriate natural science department.
The fellowship is renewable for a second and third year based on satisfactory performance.
Fellows teach two once-per-week seminar sections each semester, attend the weekly course lecture, faculty meeting and pedagogical seminar, and carry out research under the guidance of their faculty mentor. In the third year of appointment, one semester of research leave from teaching is provided. In addition to teaching and research, the Fellows participate actively in the development of the course-wide Frontiers of Science curriculum and engage in the intellectual life of the department of affiliation. A competitive annual salary is supplemented by an annual research allowance.
