Seeking motivated graduate students to start September 2016 in a multi-disciplinary degree (Agronomy, Soil Science, and Ecology) in the Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture at the University of Maryland. Please see attached flyer. 

The Louis Bacon Environmental Leadership Program brings together emerging leaders from government, business, and NGO communities dedicated to preserving and enhancing our shared environment. 

The program connects fellows with highly accomplished national and international leaders, providing them with the skills to: 

The purpose of the Research Collaboration Fellowship is to initiate and foster research collaborations between Penn State faculty at the University Park (UP) or the College of Medicine (CoM) and at campuses across the Commonwealth. Through this program faculty members with mutual research interests will be encouraged to form research partnerships and to jointly conduct research projects.

The Office of the Vice President for Research and the Social Science Research Institute at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park campus, invites applications for the Director of the Population Research Institute (PRI). PRI`s major goal is to advance the scientific understanding of human population dynamics.

The Directors of both Institutes are keen to identify and strengthen links between the Social and Life Sciences. They seek a new Associate Director who will assume the responsibility for building trans-disciplinary teams that work at the interface of the two disciplines.

The Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management (ESPM) in the College of Natural Resources at the University of California, Berkeley is recruiting for a tenure-track (academic-year) Assistant Professor in the field of agroecology/sustainable agricultural systems, with an expected start date of July 1, 2016.

General Motors is seeking Penn State students to serve a two-year term on its Student Sustainability Advisory Council (SSAC), beginning January 2016.

The Office of the Vice President for Research and the Social Science Research Institute at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park campus, invites applications for the Director of the Population Research Institute (PRI).

Earth Institute, Columbia University
 
The Earth Institute at Columbia University in New York, NY, seeks applications from innovative, doctoral candidates or recent Ph.D., M.D., J.D., or Sc.D. recipients interested in a broad range of issues in sustainable development.
 

Since 1973, ASME has sponsored over 100 Federal Fellows, providing them with an opportunity to serve a one-year term in the Administration or U.S. Congress. Fellows serve as independent, non-biased advisors in engineering, science and technology, bringing a nonpartisan, pragmatic approach to analysis and input which has a profound impact on the decision making process.

The selected candidate will work with SCRiM project teams to develop modeling, analysis, visualization, decision support, and educational tools. Desired areas of expertise include models of Earth system components, geophysical data visualization, statistical analysis of large datasets, optimization techniques, and development of web-based graphical user interfaces.

Potential projects for the successful candidate include (i) development of models to inform optimal and robust climate mitigation and adaptation strategies under uncertainty with learning, and (ii) development of models and methods for analyzing the transition of the energy system to meet multiple goals including low carbon emissions, low water usage, and low air pollution, with a particular fo

The successful candidate will work with SCRiM researchers and collaborators across multiple transdisciplinary projects to develop customized climate data products for climate impacts studies and decision support applications.

The successful candidate will join an transdisciplinary research team that analyzes two main questions: (i) How can paleoclimatic and instrumental records improve our mechanistic understanding of the climate system and inform climate predictions? (ii) How can this scientific information be used to improve the design of climate-risk management strategies?
