The NSF-NRT program at Kansas State University is recruiting graduate students (M.A/M.S. or Ph.D.) for an interdisciplinary graduate training program at Kansas State University funded by a National Research Traineeship (NRT) Award from the National Science Foundation.

The program is designed to prepare future leaders in academia, government, industry, and/or policy settings to help shape more sustainable rural communities. Students will be based in the Sociology Graduate Program, or another social science-oriented department on campus, and work with an interdisciplinary team on cutting-edge research related to food-energy-water systems, coupled socio-ecological systems, socio-hydrologic systems, and rural resource management, governance, and resiliency.

Support: The program offers a stipend of $34,000 per year (1-year at the Master’s level, 2-years at the PhD level, contingent upon satisfactory performance), and full tuition (up to 18 credit hours per year).  Following this funding, students in the program will be competitive for university and college fellowships, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships to complete their studies. The NSF requires U.S. Citizenship, green card, or permanent residency to participate with NRT funding.  Applicants will be reviewed fall/winter 2019 and positions will be available starting fall 2020.

Employment Opportunities
Tuesday, October 29, 2019 01:38 PM

CU Population Center (CUPC) at the University of Colorado Boulder is currently recruiting two postdoctoral fellows with expertise in population-environment research, to start August 2020. The initial term of appointment is one year, but reappointment for a second year is possible, subject to performance evaluation.

CUPC, housed in the Institute of Behavioral Science, is a national leader in demographic research on population health, environmental demography and migration patterns and processes. This postdoctoral research position builds on CUPC’s strengths in environmental demography, and within that area, candidates should have research expertise in migration-climate-health linkages, rural demography, social vulnerability and natural hazards, and/or urbanization processes and their effects on the environment and health.

Candidates must have experience in quantitative methods, the use of computational, statistical or data scientific approaches applied to social science or interdisciplinary research settings as well as data integration that involves spatial and non-spatial data. They are expected to bring particular interest in interdisciplinary research and will be expected to participate in, and develop, projects collaborative with Earth Lab Boulder, an initiative harmonizing the wealth of Earth observation data to facilitate innovative scholarship using combinations of satellite, survey, and field data at various spatial and temporal scales.
