    The MIT Climate & Sustainability Consortium (MCSC) convenes an influential group of industry leaders to closely collaborate with MIT on addressing greenhouse gas emissions, resource use, and sustainability more broadly. The MCSC leverages diverse business perspectives to create new collaboration opportunities that amplify and extend MIT's current efforts, while empowering industry to usher in, adapt to, and prosper in a decarbonized economy and world.

    The Consortium has launched the MCSC Impact Fellowship Program and is currently recruiting the first cohort of postdoctoral fellows. This cohort of Impact Fellows will play an important role in contributing to the impact pathways, value chain strategy, and curriculum work within the consortium and across all of MIT. The newly launched, nominally two year, program is looking for creative, motivated, and high performing researchers – from a wide range of backgrounds – with interests in interdisciplinary training and broad skill development, with a focus and aim on accelerating the necessary global transition in the face of the climate crisis. The first cohort of Fellows are expected to start in the summer or early fall of 2021. The committee will begin reviewing candidates on Friday, May 28, 2021, although exemplary applications may be considered after this deadline.
