The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) advances actionable science relevant to today’s emerging climate-related risks by supporting research by early-career NW CASC Fellows. The NW CASC’s Research Fellowship Program enables graduate students and postdocs from a variety of scientific backgrounds to co-produce actionable science in collaboration with regional natural resource managers and decision-makers. Fellows receive support for research aligned with the NW CASC Science Agenda, as well as instruction in the principles and practices of co-production of decision-relevant, or actionable science.
The NW CASC Fellowship Program supports research that is:
- Relevant to management decisions related to identifying and addressing climate impacts on Northwest natural and cultural resource management;
- Relevant to primary NW CASC stakeholders; and
- Focused in NW CASC’s geographic domain.
The NW CASC Fellowship provides training in actionable science through:
- Monthly cohort meetings
- Skills-building webinars
- Winter quarter actionable science graduate seminar
- Northwest Climate Conference
- Annual science/practice Deep Dive workshop
NW CASC is currently recruiting the next cohort of applicants for the 2021-22 academic year. Learn more & apply! Deadline March 15, 2021.
