This program supports outstanding scholars whose research focuses on innovative solutions to pressing technological, economic, and/or policy challenges relating to energy and the environment. Fellows must collaborate with two or more Princeton faculty or senior researchers within an energy or environment-related field and establish an interdisciplinary research plan. The Fellows have a fully-funded one-year appointment renewable for a second year. Eligible applicants interested in working with CTRFL should directly contact Prof. Mueller as soon as possible and include a CV in their initial communication. Applications must be submitted by December 15, 2020 for full consideration. Additional information can be found on the following website: 2021 Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships.

Prospective Graduate Students

Prospective graduate students interested in CTRFL research should apply for admission to the graduate program in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University: MAE Graduate Admissions. Typically, at least one new Ph.D. position is available with CTRFL each year.

Princeton Undergraduate Students

CTRFL generally employs one Princeton University undergraduate student during the summer as an undergraduate research assistant. In addition, Prof. Mueller is always happy to advise undergraduate independent work during the academic year. Please contact Prof. Mueller for further information.

At this time, CTRFL has no openings for undergraduate students from outside Princeton University.
