Energy Conservation PhD Research Assistantships at Michigan Technological University

Drs. Chelsea Schelly and Kathleen Halvorsen seek motivated applicants for two fully funded three-year research assistantship positions available for students pursuing a PhD in Environmental and Energy Policy at Michigan Technological University (MTU).

Students will be involved in a National Science Foundation Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water (NSF INFEWS) funded interdisciplinary research project. The project focuses on understanding and seeking ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through conservation of household-scale food, energy, and water. It involves multiple social science research methods and opportunities to collaborate with colleagues across the United States and the Netherlands in social, natural, and engineering sciences.

The Founders’ Challenge – A Fundraiser to Enhance ISSRM Student Participation

 Recognizing that today’s students are the future of our organization and professional disciplines, the founders of ISSRM and IASNR, along with several of their former students, have come together to pledge a minimum of $2,000 in support of student registration scholarships for the ISSRM conference at Michigan Tech in 2016. We are issuing a challenge to professional members of IASNR to join us in this effort – and ask that you consider adding a tax-deductible donation of $15, $25, or $50 (or some other amount if you prefer) to your registration to help in this effort to lower the cost for students to attend the symposium and become IASNR members.
