For more information, please visit: http://gri.unc.edu/applicants/

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is pleased to announce the creation of an Affiliated Fellow Program at the Global Research Institute (GRI). Through the program, a limited number of fellowships will be offered to scholars and practitioners working on research projects relating to the theme Making Scarce Water Work for All, the GRI’s research emphasis in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. While the program is open to all, it should prove particularly appealing to applicants on sabbatical leave or with grant support.

UNC-Chapel Hill is one of the world’s leading centers for water research, and Affiliated Fellows at the GRI in 2013-14 will have the opportunity to connect with leading water experts at UNC- Chapel Hill–people such as Jamie Bartram, Pete Kolsky, and Larry Band, to name just a few– both in individual schools and departments and in multidisciplinary units such as the Institute for the Environment and The Water Institute. Through seminars, workshops, and other networking opportunities, GRI Affiliated Fellows, together with the UNC-Chapel Hill “water community,” will work to develop a better understanding of the critical global challenges of managing water availability and quality, and spark new ideas for sound solutions.

The university has declared a campus-wide focus on water during academic years 2012-2013 and 2013-2014–“Water In Our World”—and concerted efforts are being made by schools, departments across disciplines to integrate water into the curriculum, providing a robust center for water activity and interest at UNC-Chapel Hill.

In addition to the opportunity of working in person with leading UNC faculty, and participating in UNC-CH’s renowned water and health conference (October 14-18, 2013), the fellowship provides office space and administrative support in the FedEx Global Education Center for one or two semesters (applicants on a quarter system can be accommodated). Travel monies to/from Chapel Hill are also provided, and the affiliated fellows selected are eligible to compete for research funds while on site in Chapel Hill. Applicants are invited to provide a curriculum vitae; a research proposal of no more than 1500 words outlining the project that will be undertaken during the fellowship term; and the names of three references (with contact information). In the proposal applicants should be quite specific about the problem or problems they are addressing, the methods to be employed, any UNC-CH faculty members with whom they wish to collaborate, and the importance of the expected results. All application materials should be sent in electronic form to:

Ms. Terry Tamari, GRI Coordinator
ttamari(at)unc.edu

We shall begin reviewing applications on February 1, 2013, but will continue to accept them until April 1, 2013.
