Ph.D. Fellowships in Pathways to a Net Zero Carbon Future! State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF)
Stemming from our SUNY-UWI partnership and collaborations among members of the Global University Consortium on SDG-13 (Climate Action), the University Office of Global Partnerships and Sustainable Futures is pleased to announce an opportunity for Ph.D. fellowships being offered by the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF).
The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) has a new initiative called ‘Pathways to a Net Zero Carbon Future’. A major thrust of this effort is training a new generation of scholar-practitioners to work at the challenging intersection of land use, energy systems, and climate change. As such, ESF has begun recruiting for the first cohort of students to receive generous fellowships to attend ESF and work across disciplines to help them build this exciting program from a vision into reality.
SUNY ESF is seeking exceptional doctoral students to join a new trans-disciplinary initiative aimed at addressing ‘wicked problems’ at the intersection of land use practices, energy systems, and climate change. The Pathways to a Net Zero Carbon Future project brings together three foundational areas of expertise at ESF – sustainable energy management, ecosystem stewardship, and climate-resilient design – at a time when practical solutions are urgently needed to decarbonize landscapes, build local resilience, and ensure just transitions. ESF is recruiting up to five highly capable, motivated, and creative PhD scholars that share a commitment to these goals and demonstrate potential as trans-disciplinary researchers, practitioners, and team members. Successful applicants will receive two years of fellowship support and will then receive graduate assistant-ships to complete their degree programs.
