FELLOWSHIP: Coupled Human and Natural Systems (CHANS)
With support from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the International Network of Research on Coupled Human and Natural Systems (CHANS-Net) is pleased to call for applications for 2011 CHANS Fellowships. The selected CHANS Fellows will present posters or give talks in accepted symposia at the 2011 AAAS meeting and attend the symposium "Telecoupling of Human and Natural Systems" and a number of other related symposia. They will have opportunities to interact with the speakers at the symposia who are active in CHANS research, to learn the latest developments in CHANS research, and to build professional networks with other attendees. The symposia will be held at the annual meeting of AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) in Washington, D.C., from February 17-21, 2011.
Approximately 10 fellowships (up to $1,000 each) will be provided to select graduate students, postdoctoral associates, junior faculty members, and other junior researchers around the world to defray expenses associated with attending the meeting. Applications will be judged on the merits of the applicants' abstracts, financial need, and professional backgrounds and goals.
Deadline: October 25, 2010
