IGERT: Adaptation to Change in Water Resources: Science to Inform Decision-making Across Disciplines, Cultures and Scales


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Description:
This Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) award prepares Ph.D. students at the University of Idaho with the tools to address the effects of climate change and human population dynamics upon physical, ecological, and social systems. The program provides trainees with an interdisciplinary water resources education that promotes socially responsible practice in research and the development of innovative approaches to problem solving. The goal of this IGERT program is to train future scientists who will develop adaptation strategies for the short-term and long-term impacts of climate change and population dynamics on water supply and demand. Trainees will integrate changes in infrastructure, legal and institutional structure, and ecological responses into their adaption strategies. While studying the Columbia River Basin in the U.S. and Canada, and the Biob?o River Basin in Chile, trainees will research landscape level water quantity and quality, regulated and unregulated river systems, and social networks of institutions and organizations that will use the science in decision making. The program will provide trainees with courses, workshops, and informal activities to foster collaboration.
