BP Energy and Climate Fellowship
The BP Energy and Climate Fellowship provides tuition and stipend for an MIT graduate student to support thesis research on energy and climate change. Research topics that involve the interaction of human and earth systems are preferred. Topics can range from how advanced energy systems may limit climate change to earth system responses to greenhouse gas and aerosol forcing or the impacts of climate change on human systems, especially energy systems. The Fellowship provides the opportunity to work with research scientists and faculty in the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. Preference will be given to topics that make use of or advance the Integrated Global Systems Model (IGSM) developed in the Program or components of the framework. More detail on the Program and the IGSM is available at http://globalchange.mit.edu/.
Applicants at an early stage in formulating their research are encouraged. The Fellowship is for one year with the potential for renewal or follow-up funding for promising research. Applicants should submit a 1 to 2 page proposal along with a CV to Fannie Barnes (email@example.com) by Sept 5, 2012. Selection for Academic year 2012/13 will occur in September 2012.
