Possible research areas include sustainable agriculture; water resources management, climate change, and environmental ethics; machine ethics; and neuroethics.

The successful candidate will engage in collaborative research and produce publications, as well as receive training and mentorship. Postdoctoral scholars may receive experience working on grants. They will also receive support to allow them to participate in seminars and conferences appropriate to their personal career goals.

The postdoctoral scholarship is a twelve-month, full-time (40 hours per week) appointment, from the date of hire. This limited-term appointment may be continued for a second year, contingent upon the needs of the College and the Institute.
