2019-2021 KAVLI ENSI HEISING-SIMONS JUNIOR FELLOWSHIPS: CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

The Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute invites department chairs,
faculty advisors, professors and research scientists to submit
nominations for the *HEISING-SIMONS JUNIOR FELLOWSHIP* at the
University of California, Berkeley. These two-year postdoctoral
fellowships are designed to attract the most talented and promising
young researchers in nanoscale science to the Kavli Energy NanoScience
Institute at Berkeley. Fellows will work in partnership with one or
more Kavli ENSI faculty sponsors on innovative projects advancing the
mission of Kavli ENSI. Heising-Simons Junior Fellows are expected to
begin their Fellowship shortly after being awarded their Ph.D.
Applications will be evaluated on the qualifications of the candidate,
the quality and originality of the proposed research, and the
commitment of the faculty sponsor(s). Preference will be given to
candidates in interdisciplinary areas of nanoscience. Up to two
Fellowships will be awarded for Fall 2019. The Institute provides a
starting stipend of $62,000, with an increase in the second year.
Kavli ENSI Heising-Simons Fellows also receive a research fund of
$50,000 per annum to be used in support of research during the
Fellowship.

*THE KAVLI ENERGY NANOSCIENCES INSTITUTE* at the University of
California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is
dedicated to studying how nature manages energy at the nanoscale and
to developing entirely new ways to capture, store, and harness energy
for the world’s growing population. For more information, see
kavli.berkeley.edu/.

*NOMINATIONS* may be submitted by faculty and PhD-level research
scientists from around the world and are not limited to faculty at UC
Berkeley. Nominators should submit a letter addressing the nominee’s
qualifications and potential to make contributions to the field of
nanoscale science. Letters of nomination should be submitted on
institutional letterhead and include the following information:
nominee’s full legal name; nominee’s PhD institution and (expected)
date of PhD; nominee’s current institution, if different; nominee’s
current email address; nominator’s title and email address.

*KAVLI ENSI HEISING-SIMONS JUNIOR FELLOWS* must have at least one
Kavli ENSI faculty sponsor. The Kavli ENSI sponsor will play a role in
overseeing the Fellow’s progress and helping to integrate them into
the activities of Kavli ENSI. Eligible nominees will be invited to
apply for the Fellowship and to contact prospective Kavli ENSI faculty
sponsors to discuss their proposed research (see
kavli.berkeley.edu/people).

*DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS IS SEPTEMBER 28, 2018.*

Please submit letters of nomination (pdf format preferred) to:
kavli-ensi@berkeley.edu. Upon notification of their nomination,
nominees must submit their full applications October 31, 2018. Direct
applications are not accepted. Awards will be made in December. For
