The online application portal for the inaugural Klarman Fellowships has now opened, with a deadline of Oct. 15.

The Klarman Fellowships are expected to be among the most coveted in the country, providing postdoctoral opportunities to early-career scholars of outstanding talent, initiative and promise. Fellows receive generous salaries, benefits and research support; with independence from the constraints of particular grants, recipients are able to devote themselves to frontline, innovative research which is not tied to specific outcomes or teaching responsibilities.

“We are recruiting the most promising emerging researchers from around the world,” said Ray Jayawardhana, the Harold Tanner Dean of Arts and Sciences. “We hope our faculty and students will spread the word to colleagues at other institutions about this exciting opportunity at Cornell.”

Fellows are being recruited from all disciplines in Arts & Sciences: science and math as well as the humanities and social sciences. Up to six fellows will be chosen for three-year terms each year, for a total of up to 30 fellows over five pilot cohorts.

The Fellowships are supported by a significant gift from Seth ’79 and Beth Klarman.
