During the summer of 2020, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University will fund up to 10 PhD students for full or partial fellowships to participate in data analysis and/or literature aggregation in support of its five core areas of interest, including the:
- Climate and Energy Program
- Ecosystem Services Program
- Ocean and Coastal Policy Program
- State Policy Program
- Water Policy Program
These fellowships are merit-based and intended to initiate new collaborations with laboratories in Sanford School of Public Policy, Trinity School of Arts and Sciences, Nicholas School of the Environment, and Pratt School of Engineering, whose work is of relevance to the Institute and its programs.
Each fellowship is structured as a paid internship. PhD students are expected to complete their assigned project between June-August 2020. Salary (up to $7,950) and fringe (up to $1,152.75) will be transferred to the appropriate school to cover the fellowship.
How to Apply
To apply, PhD students should find a match between their interests and the work of a Nicholas Institute senior staff member who will then submit the request for funding. See the full article, including a list of Nicholas Institute senior staff members and their contact information.
