Biodiversity Fellowships

UF Biodiversity Institute Graduate Student Fellowships, 2016-17
Call for applications

These 9-month Fellowships are geared toward mid-PhD students whose dissertation projects could particularly benefit from interdisciplinary opportunities with faculty, post-docs, and students outside their departments or programs.

The UFBI also anticipates funding Summer Fellowships, beginning Summer, 2017; further information about this program will be available during the 2016-17 academic year.

The newly formed UF Biodiversity Institute encourages interdisciplinary research and training with two main foci:  (1) using big data –  informatics, modeling, computation of heterogeneous data – to describe, understand, explain, and predict patterns of biodiversity and the processes that generated those patterns, and (2) translating knowledge on biodiversity into action – conservation, policy, law, education, etc. – through relevant partnerships with journalists, social scientists, education specialists, lawyers, representatives of state and federal agencies, and others.

Details available here.
