Job Posting: PICS Graduate Fellowships
PICS is pleased to announce that the 2017 fellowship call is now open.
Faculty members resident at one of the four PICS consortium universities are invited to apply for graduate-fellowship support for exploration of novel issues that focus on climate-change adaptation or mitigation. Proposals must focus on climate solutions, be relevant to British Columbia, and engage stakeholders/knowledge users in the design and development of the research.
PICS’ current five research foci are: energy efficiency in the built environment; low C transportation futures; carbon stewardship in BC’s forests; BC natural gas development; and integration of the western Canadian electrical grid (PICS Research). Proposals for Graduate Fellowships related to these five topics will not be excluded from consideration, but PICS especially encourages applications that embrace other topics that fall under the broad climate-change solutions challenges that face society. Topics that we are particularly encouraging applications for include clean technologies and innovations that can be commercialized and adopted globally; effective adaptation options especially for small and medium business, indigenous communities, and high risk populations; and effectiveness indicators for GHG reduction policies.
Applications may only be submitted by continuing (tenured or tenure-track) faculty members. If subsequently recommended for funding, the faculty member will recruit and nominate a suitable student to hold the fellowship. Only one fellowship will be provided to each successful faculty researcher in this competition. Up to five fellowships will be awarded in 2017 for support at the Masters or PhD level.
The deadline for applications is midnight, Jan. 16, 2017.
