Interdisciplinary Training, Education and Research in Food-Energy-Water Systems graduate traineeship program - Deadline January 15th
Interested in food, energy or water systems and sustainability issues? Consider applying for the new Interdisciplinary Training, Education and Research in Food-Energy-Water Systems (InTERFEWS) graduate traineeship program created to integrate Food-Energy-Water (FEW) education using a systems-based approach that cuts across disciplines, departments and colleges. InTERFEWS is currently accepting CSU PhD candidates to join the fall 2021 semester, with priority given to those entering the 1st or 2nd semester of their PhD program (those beyond their 3rd semester are not eligible).
The InTERFEWS program equips students with 21st century career skills, preparing graduates to solve complex problems by bringing together doctoral students from traditionally disparate disciplines to conduct research on key problems in the FEW nexus with a focus on water-scarce, arid regions. The program includes four components:
- Curriculum – Two newly developed InTERFEWS courses as well as communication and elective courses that specifically address FEWS issues
- Research – Activities are focused on sustainable technological, infrastructural, policy, and institutional FEWS innovations
- Professional Development – Activities include transdisciplinary problem solving and communications training
- Apprenticeships – Trainees will participate in an apprenticeship with our partners including local and national companies, NGOs and government agencies
Both funded and unfunded traineeships are available. Funded trainees receive a stipend ($34k annually) and tuition coverage for two years, while unfunded trainees will receive a tuition premium (if needed). Additionally, all trainees will have access to travel and supply funds, as well as office space.
Application Deadline (FA2021): Applications due by January 15, 2021, by 5pm.

ACS International Research Experiences for Students Program - Deadline December 15th
On behalf of the American Chemical Society Global Outreach Team, it is my pleasure to announce the opening of the application window for the 2021 International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program.
The ACS IRES program is seeking applications from qualified U.S. undergraduate students to explore chemistry and chemical engineering lab research in an international setting. ACS has partnered with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to place U.S. students at German research labs from May-August 2021 (final research dates are determined between selected students at the host lab). This is a unique research opportunity for U.S. undergraduate sciences students to experience international research cooperation at its heart and developing their cross-cultural communication skills-a critical professional skill for researchers.
Selected students will receive a generous per diem stipend, housing allowance, round-trip economy class airfare to/from Germany, and health insurance while abroad. Additionally, students will participate (and receive financial support to attend) in the 2021 DAAD Heidelberg Forum and the 2022 ACS Spring Meeting in San Diego, California. A full list of program details, including financial allowances, eligibility and application instructions can be found here. This program is generously supported through the NSF Office of International Science & Engineering.
Uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 continues to challenge scientific and educational communities worldwide. Please note, while we fully intend to administer the 2021 ACS IRES program, the program is subject to change, including cancellation, if deemed necessary by relevant health authorities in the United States or Germany.
