The Nature Conservancy is pleased to solicit applications for the 2018 cohort of NatureNet Science Fellows.
The Nature Conservancy recognizes climate change as the single greatest threat to our mission, and to humanity. Never before has there been an issue that so tightly integrates the health of the planet with the economy, food production, clean, reliable water, health, and equality.
The NatureNet Science Fellows and Research Grant program aims to bridge academic excellence and conservation practice to confront climate change, and to create a new generation of conservation leaders who combine the rigor of academic science with real-world application. Within this framework, the program goals are to:
- Support innovative and impact-oriented research that help deliver TNC outcomes;
- Invest in the talent potential of a new generation of climate change leaders;
- Recruit scientists who bring a diversity of culture, experience, and ideas into conservation; and
- Provide partner universities and fellows with access to real-world conservation issues.
Ideal Candidates for NatureNet Science Fellowships and Research Grants are outstanding early-career scientists and engineers who seek to improve and expand their research skills while directing their efforts toward problems at the interface of climate, conservation, business, technology, and people. Recognizing that our conservation mission is best advanced by the contributions of individuals of diverse backgrounds, beliefs and cultures - we encourage applicants from all cultures, races, colors, religions, sexes, national or regional origins, ages, disability status, sexual orientations, gender identities, military or veteran status or other status protected by law.
Through this ground-breaking research, the program will create a network of fellows, university scientists, engineers and conservation scientists that increases the rigor and breadth of thought applied to the issue of climate change, and ensures that breakthroughs will reach well beyond the network to create impact.
Applications will be accepted from September 8, 2017 through November 6, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
