SoGES seeks proposals for Global Challenges Research Teams, Resident Fellows

hands on top of each other, showing teamworkThe School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES) is accepting proposals for Global Challenges Research Teams and Resident Fellows for 2016-17. Both programs seek proposals that address global and regional environmental sustainability grand challenges, are highly innovative and enterprising, and are applicable to real-world sustainability issues.

The process is open to all CSU faculty. The proposal deadline is Jan. 29, 2016.

Successful proposals for Global Challenges Research Teams bring together CSU scientists across disciplines to cultivate new scientific relationships, overcome barriers to interdisciplinary research, establish commonalities and understanding of scientific language and methodology, and utilize an innovative approach to sustainability science.

What are SoGES leaders seeking for the Resident Fellows program? Faculty and instructors whose work focuses on sustainability science, including but not limited to biological and physical sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities, and engineering.

Current fellows are studying air quality impacts associated with the production of shale-based oil and gas resources, health as a unifying theme through which to promote conservation and sustainable use of public lands, and how art and sustainability science intersect.

The team and fellow positions provide unique opportunities to accelerate progress in research designed to meet global environmental challenges, and to engage in the academic life of SoGES and its affiliates.
