TheNature Conservancy is happy to use Nature Net Science Fellows and Research Grant program in the USA. The Nature Conservancy acknowledges environment modification as the single biggest danger to our objective, and to mankind.
TheNature Net Science Fellows and Research Grant program intends to bridge scholastic quality and preservation practice to challenge environment modification, and to develop a brand-new generation of preservation leaders who integrate the rigor of scholastic science with real-world application.
TheNature Conservancy is a charitable ecological company, locateded in Arlington, Virginia, UnitedStates Its objective is to “conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.”
CourseLevel: Fellowship is readily available to pursue a Postdoctoral research program.
StudySubject: Within these objectives are 2 overarching styles:
- Theme 1: Halting Climate Change
The bulk of forecasted environment modification effects can be prevented if we act rapidly and strongly to a low-carbon energy system. Getting there will need significant brand-new advances in the science and engineering behind energy innovation– from storage, enhanced performance, and transmission, to brand-new source advancement–andin how we release all energy sources– from motivating significant energy source shifts to siting and running brand-new facilities with very little ecological effect. Fellows might take on these difficulties from the fields of physics, chemistry, landscape preparation, electrical engineering, biology, nanotechnology, government, meteorology, waste management, computer technology, energy innovation, location, or transportation engineering.
- Theme 2: Adapting to Climate Change
Climate modification is currently taking place, and present levels of greenhouse gasses in the environment have actually currently locked the world into considerable environment disturbance. The Nature Net program supports research that will recognize brand-new methods for minimizing these effects and enhancing the capability of both nature and individuals to adjust. Relevant difficulties will be dealt with by fellows from fields as widing variety as coral biology, farming innovation, political economics, seaside geomorphology, ecology, forestry, water and sanitation health, meteorology, ecological toxicology, agronomy, watering engineering, animal husbandry, fisheries, or seaside engineering.
ScholarshipAward: Option 1: Post-DoctoralFellowship Position
EachFellow will get a non-negotiable yearly wage of $50,000 plus advantages, with the postdoctoral position anticipated to run for 2 successive years. In addition to the stipend, each Fellow gets a yearly travel spending plan of roughly $5,000and a yearly research fund of roughly $20,000 Second- year renewal of the fellowship rests upon acceptable development and contribution to the cumulative program.
Option 2: Postdoctoral Research Grant
Each beneficiary will get a research stipend of $20,000, with the grant duration anticipated to run for 2 successive years. Second- year renewal of the grant rests upon acceptable development and contribution to the cumulative program. The Conservancy will disperse grant funds in between May andSeptember Funds are granted straight to the beneficiary’s organization and might be utilized by the beneficiary for such functions as devices, technical help, expert travel, student assistance, summer season wage, or other activity straight associated to the beneficiaries’ research.

Nationality: International candidates are qualified to look for this fellowship program.
How to Apply: Applications will be accepted from September 1, 2017, through November 1, 2017, at 11: 59 pm EST.
- Cover letter( restricted to 1 page). Applicants needs to explain their research experience and viability for the program and show how their previous experience enhances their capability to establish and execute the proposed research.
- Research proposition( restricted to 2 pages). The proposition ought to highlight the research concern of interest, plainly articulate the research method and approaches, and detail the job’s clinical significance. Most significantly, within this context jobs ought to show a clear capacity for providing outcomes for The Nature Conservancy’s international top priorities, recognize the audience who will utilize the outputs of your work, and deal with the Nature Net program’s styles of action-oriented research that concentrates on environment modification mitigation and/ or adjustment. Applicants are highly motivated to establish their jobs with their TNC and University coaches.
- CurriculumVitae or resume.
