• NWC Cooperative Projects: COMET anticipates awarding two-four competitively reviewed, 1-2-year projects, each with a budget maximum of $40,000. The deadline for submission of a preliminary synopsis is October 2, 2017, with the final proposal due December 15, 2017. For more information, please see NWC Cooperative Projects RFP and the guidelines for NWC Cooperative Project proposal submissions.
• NWC Partners Projects: COMET is currently accepting 1-year NWC Partners proposals (budgets limited to $15,000). Proposals will be reviewed as received, and approved submissions will be funded until program resources are expended. For more information, please see NWC RFP Details. It is anticipated that up to six projects will be awarded. For details on these projects, see NWC Partners Proposals.
Science literacy is an important outcome for students. One aspect of this is the development of scientific knowledge or the nature of science. Please consider participating in a study by Larry Collins that examines expert vs. novice views of the development of scientific knowledge. Participation will take approximately 10-15 minutes. You’ll be asked to complete a sorting task that could be adapted for assessing science content in undergraduate courses. Please contact Larry Collins (email@example.com) for more information.
The NW Climate Science Center invites proposals from faculty at UW, BSU, UM, WSU and WWU for funding to support research by graduate students and post-docs in fields relating to understanding and addressing climate impacts on NW natural and cultural resources, and training of these NW CSC Fellows in the principles and practices of co-producing decision-relevant (“actionable”) science. Funding will be available as early as Fall 2017, to support research performed during the 17-18 academic year (at least through December 2017).
For details about the fellowship and how to apply, please click here. Applications should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org- those received before 11 September 2017 will be given preference.
This call is for research proposals from joint U.S. – China teams in the environmental sustainability themes of:
“Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems (INFEWS: U.S.-China)”
1. Quantitative and computational modeling of a FEW system
2. Innovative human and technological solutions to critical FEW systems problems.
Every proposal must include the participation of researchers from at least one U.S. institution and at least one institution in China. The proposal submitted to NSF must conform to NSF proposal requirements as specified in NSF’s posted Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), and the matching proposal submitted to NSFC must conform to requirements posted by NSFC. NSF will fund the U.S. researchers of winning teams (up to a total of $500K for 4 years for each winning proposal), while NSFC will fund the China researchers of winning teams (up to a total of 3 million yuan for 4 years for each winning proposal). In total, no more than 7 joint NSF-NSFC project grants are expected to be funded. Each proposal must include a management plan that clearly specifies the role of team researchers from both the U.S. and China, and the mechanisms through which close collaboration will be assured. The management plan is not to exceed 3 pages and is to be included in the supplementary document file of the electronic submission.
Submission window is October 1 – October 20, 2017. The window closes at 5:00 pm submitter’s local time on October 20, 2017. More information on submittal procedures is posted at: https://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=505338. For more information

This course seeks to train graduate students in the theory and measurements of heat, water vapor, and carbon dioxide fluxes between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. Students will be introduced to the micrometeorological theory of atmospheric turbulence and land-surface fluxes and the working principles of state-of-the-art eddy covariance systems and sensors for flux measurements. Through detailed, hands-on practice, students will learn how to design and build a micrometeorological flux tower and gain skills in datalogger programming, sensor wiring, data acquisition, and post-field processing and statistical analysis of eddy covariance flux data. Quality assurance and quality controls of flux data will also be discussed. Special topics will be covered, including the surface energy balance over different ecosystems, terrestrial ecosystem carbon budgets, uncertainties in flux measurements, and fluxes over complex terrain. Students will learn how to utilize flux data from the FLUXNET or Ameriflux networks to study the surface energy budget, evaporation, and/or carbon budget over a variety of terrestrial ecosystems across different time scales.
The positions will be located within the Pillar of Engineering Systems Design at
Singapore University of Technology and Design. Successful applicants will be
offered a 2-year position in Singapore and will collaborate with Dr. Stefano
Galelli (SUTD), Dr. Bikramjit Das (SUTD) and Dr. Paul Block (University of
Both positions are available starting March 1, 2018. Attractive working
conditions include a competitive compensation and an option to renew for a
third year. Applications will be evaluated until a suitable candidate is selected.
Interested candidates should send a 1 page letter on why they are motivated, CV,
and a list of publications to email@example.com For more information
