Charles Bullard Fellowship in Forest Research | DETAILS
Research areas include forest ecology, tree physiology, soil biogeochemistry and microbial ecology, forest resource management, conservation and biodiversity, land use planning, and public policy. Fellowships are occasionally awarded in the arts and environmental humanities.

Fellows can be based at the Harvard Forest or associated with other departments and centers at Harvard University. Potential fellows are encouraged to contact appropriate Harvard collaborators well in advance of the application deadline. Please note that proposals in the arts and humanities must demonstrate a strong connection to the research at Harvard Forest.
