News Fellowships in Sustainability Science: Center for International Development, Harvard University Due date for applications: January 15, 2009

The Sustainability Science Program at Harvard University's Center for International Development invites applications for resident fellowships in Sustainability science for the University's academic year beginning in September 2009.

The fellowship competition is open to advanced doctoral and post-doctoral students, and to mid-career professionals engaged in research or practice to facilitate the design, implementation, and evaluation of effective interventions that promote sustainable development.

Applicants should describe how their work would contribute to "sustainability science," the emerging field of use-inspired research seeking understanding of the interactions between human and environmental systems as well as the application of such knowledge to sustainability challenges relating to advancing development of agriculture, habitation, energy and materials, health and water while conserving the earth?s life support systems.  

This year we will give some preference to applicants who address the challenges related to meeting human needs for water or  food/agriculture/land use in the context of sustainable development.

In addition to general funds available to support this fellowship offering, special funding for the Giorgio Ruffolo Fellowships in Sustainability Science is available to support citizens of Italy or developing countries who are therefore especially encouraged to apply.

 Applications are due January 15, 2009.
