At the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment (IonE) we envision a world in which sustainable agriculture feeds the world; renewable energy powers healthy homes, efficient transportation and flourishing businesses; every person has access to food, water and shelter; oceans, lakes and rivers are clean and healthy; communities have vibrant economies, neighborhoods and cultures; and thriving ecosystems support flourishing economies and societies. 

The goal of the IonE Postdoctoral Fellowship is to accelerate the transition to this future by supporting breakthrough research across disciplines, developing the next generation of global leaders, and building transformative partnerships across the state, region and globe. IonE Postdoctoral Fellows are interdisciplinary, community-engaged scholars who thrive both as team leaders and collaborators. The Fellows are visionary leaders who conduct solutions-oriented research to support equitable and just sustainability transition decisions. The Fellows define success by the impact they have in the world.      

It’s important to stress this is not academia as usual. Our career scientists are redefining the role of academia in service of society. Our impact entrepreneurship and leadership development programs are unique within higher education and are preparing the next generation of change agents. And our entire community of 250+ fellows, researchers, students and staff — in partnership with external collaborators — is working every day to make the world a better place.

Because the future is not yet set in stone. Together, we create the future.
