Natural-Human Systems in the Urbanizing Tropics

Categoría: Eventos ∗ Etiquetas: , ,

The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program at the University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras (UPR-RP) aims to train Ph.D. students in interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to environmental problems in urbanizing, tropical landscapes. The program is based in the natural sciences, but students receive interdisciplinary training in social science perspectives on environmental issues and apply these to real-world problems. The common element for dissertation research is how human and natural systems interact. Research may cover climate, water, food security, renewable energy, waste management, biodiversity, or urban system services, among other topics. Research topics are developed in collaboration with a government agency, non-profit organization, or community group. Projects can be based in Puerto Rico or elsewhere in the tropics. Puerto Rico has had a dynamic environmental history, with nearly complete deforestation followed by forest recovery, and then urban sprawl as the economy modernized.  The environmental problems caused by these shifts, overlaid by changes in climate and vulnerability to catastrophic storms, make Puerto Rico an ideal place to conduct integrative research. This program is funded by the National Science Foundation. This IGERT is based in the UPR-RP Environmental Science Graduate Program, but students in other UPR-RP graduate programs may apply. The deadline for application to UPR-RP graduate programs is January 20, 2012. The deadline for application for these IGERT fellowships is February 27, 2012. Applicants must contact the IGERT program and a prospective advisor before applying. See the website and email addresses below.

Benefits: $30,000/year for two years; $2,000 for travel and education materials; office, computer and software usage; reserved space in all special courses and workshops
