Six Fellowship Positions in Global Change at Virginia Tech:


We are seeking highly motivated Ph.D. students interested in global change to participate in a unique doctoral program at Virginia Tech. The Interfaces of Global Change Interdisciplinary Graduate Education Program (IGC IGEP) is designed to address the multi-dimensional aspects of global change, including the complex interactions among disease, pollution, climate change, habitat loss, invasive species, and the science-society interface.  In the future, a more interdisciplinary understanding of how these anthropogenic factors interact is necessary to inform public policy, minimize further environmental degradation and loss of biodiversity, and to promote sustainable solutions to the greatest environmental challenges of the 21st century.&#8232;

Six one-year fellowship positions, which include funding for tuition and a monthly stipend, are available for the 2014-2015 academic year.
The goals of the IGC IGEP are to provide each Fellow with a broad perspective on:

  A) how major global changes interact to impact biodiversity and environmental health,
  B) the societal causes and consequences of these ecological problems, and
  C) the role that science can play in resolving these issues by informing sound environmental policy.
Our interdisciplinary graduate program welcomes the participation of students from a broad range of disciplines, including, but not limited to, such fields as biology, entomology, environmental science, toxicology, veterinary medicine, agriculture, fisheries and wildlife, plant pathology, history, engineering, and geosciences. Students will receive their Ph.D. degree from the home department of their choice, while also enrolling in the IGC IGEP. In this way, students will gain depth in their specific scientific area of expertise, while simultaneously gaining breadth in the multifaceted realm of global change and the science-policy interface. 
Applications are now being accepted. To be considered for a 2014-2015 fellowship (one year tuition and stipend), your complete application must be received by March 1st, 2014. However, additional applications for admission to the Interfaces of Global Change program will be considered until August 1st, 2014.
Please visit our website for complete details:

Minimum qualifications include a B.A. or B.S. degree.  Requirements will vary depending on the home department. Interested students should contact one of our IGC core faculty members ( ), or any other Virginia Tech faculty member, about joining their research program.  

Once you have identified a faculty mentor, complete the normal application process to the Virginia Tech Graduate School. ( )

Then, for complete instructions on how to apply for a fellowship in the Interfaces of Global Change program, please see our website:
