Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) invites proposals for its 2019-2020 Research Fellowship Program

The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) invites proposals for its 2019-2020 Research Fellowship Program from graduate students at University of Washington (UW), Boise State University (BSU), University of Montana (UM), Washington State University (WSU) and Western Washington University (WWU) and postdoctoral scientists at BSU, UM, WSU, and WWU (this fellowship cannot support postdocs at UW). The NW CASC Fellowship Program provides both support for research related to climate adaptation in Northwest natural and cultural resource management and instruction of funded fellows in the principles and practices of co-producing decision-relevant (“actionable”) science. Funding will be available as early as Fall Term 2019, to support research performed during the 2019-2020 academic year (see below for information about specific funding period). Proposals are due April 15, 2019.
For more information and to apply.

NUEC’19 Registration Scholarships Available. Applications due April 10th.

Awardees receive free conference registration!

Three registration scholarships (valued at approximately $650/each) will be awarded to individuals, one from each of the following categories:

  1. A Cooperative Extension System employee who would be a first-time attendee of the National Urban Extension Conference.
  2. A Land Grant University (LGU) Champion. This is an individual who works within a LGU, is not a full time Extension employee, and is an advocate / champion of the work / mission of Extension.
  3. An LGU “Partner”. This is someone working outside of, but directly with, Extension to achieve the LGU mission. This could be a community member, elected official, foundation or non-profit representative, or governmental organization staff partner.

Stephanie Hampton, division director for the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) to speak on current NSF opportunities

Thursday, March 28, 2019
1:30-2:30 PACCAR 202

“Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Sciences – Opportunities at the National Science Foundation”.
A reception will follow. Hampton is also a professor in WSU’s School of the Environment. She was tapped to serve as the DEB division director in May 2018.
Prior to her NSF appointment, Hampton served as the director of WSU’s Center for Environmental Research, Education and Outreach. Her research expertise includes aquatic science, statistical analysis, and environmental informatics. She has analyzed long-term ecological data collected from globally diverse waters such as Lake Baikal in Siberia and Lake Washington in Seattle. Together with collaborators, she has shown how lakes respond to municipal management practices like sewage diversion. Hampton also has helped demonstrate the effects of climate change on plankton – the basic building blocks of aquatic food webs.
To schedule a one-on-one meeting with Hampton before or after her talk, contact Emily Brashear by email at emily.brashear@wsu.edu.
