Auburn University is pleased to announce that they are accepting applications for their National Science Foundation Research Traineeship, or NRT, Program on Climate Resilience Now through Jan. 10, 2022.

Funded positions receive a $34,000 stipend per year for up to two years, qualify for the Auburn graduate out-of-state tuition and instate-tuition waivers and a set amount of semesterly student fees are paid. Funded Trainees must either be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Unfunded Trainees may receive departmental support in lieu of NSF funding. Both groups of students have the same expectations and qualify to participate in all aspects of the program.

This NRT program's goal is to train the next generation of scientists and leaders who can help build resilient communities that are prepared for, can effectively respond to, and quickly recover from damaging hazard events in the Southeastern United States. Master's and doctoral students will conduct research within an integrated and multidisciplinary framework with the aim to better understand, predict, and communicate the resilience of natural, social and built environmental systems.

For additional details on the NRT program and to apply now, check out the NRT website.

Have any questions? Want to hear from current trainees? Join us on Nov 10 at 4 p.m. CT for a Virtual Recruitment Meeting on Zoom.
