Description

We invite applications for the National Science Foundation’s Research Traineeship (NRT) Program on “Rivers, Watersheds & Communities: Training an Innovative, Cross-Sector Workforce for Equitable, Multi-Scale Decision-Making Towards Human and Ecosystem Health” (RWC NRT). This program trains MSc and PhD students in science (including social sciences) and engineering to do research to tackle water challenges in the Columbia River Basin hand-in-hand with the communities impacted. By valuing Traditional Ecological Knowledge and western science, students will learn how to find solutions to these pressing water-related challenges via community-engaged research.

Rivers support communities and landscapes in important ways – from providing food and clean water, to acting as pathways for transporting goods and travel corridors for organisms, to serving in cultural and spiritual roles for people. Despite their importance, many river systems are highly contaminated due to decades of industrial activity, pesticide runoff, water treatment discharges, and urban runoff. Compared to visible changes in water quantity, water quality is an ‘invisible water crisis’. As this crisis escalates, water quality problems in watersheds and communities will require a workforce capable of integrating scientific information, public policy, and the knowledge and concerns of affected populations. 

The RWC NRT program is looking to attract students with diverse experiences, interests and cultural backgrounds in the areas of biology, ecology, environmental science, earth science, environmental engineering, environmental sociology, political science, and water resources. In addition to the M.Sc. or Ph.D., students may earn a ScienCE Certificate in community engagement (CE). A mix of NSF, WSU and agency funds are available to fully support research and trainee stipends; and there is the possibility of add-on funding to achieve the ScienCE Certificate after completion of RWC core courses. NSF-funded NRT students must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., its territories, or its possessions.

As part of the student degree program, students will be part of a core RWC NRT program that will include an immersion field course, the interdisciplinary water science and management course, an RWC environmental health seminar, a leadership development course, an integrated solutions experience course, and a student-specific community engagement experience. Students will continually contribute to the Columbia River Basin Living Atlas, a visual- and data-based representation of social-ecological systems, to share and synthesize information to communities and the public.

To Apply: Applicants should submit a resume, a letter of support from a former advisor or (if known) the advisor of your M.S. or Ph.D. program at WSU, and must complete the online application form that includes questions about your interest in the program. For online application information please visit http://www.NRT-RWC.wsu.edu. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and will continue to be reviewed until a suitable cohort of students is selected. The priority deadline for applications is November 7, 2022. We anticipate that selected students will officially start the NRT traineeship in August 2023. 



Requirements

NSF-funded NRT students must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., its territories, or its possessions.
