Apply for our Fulbright Visiting Research Chairs in Environment and Economy, and Environmental Policy at the University of Ottawa! Fulbright awards to Canada provide a prestigious professional development opportunity for faculty and highlight the university’s robust academic rigour. The University of Ottawa's Fulbright alumni include Brian Murray (Duke), Ben Cashore (Yale), Richard Morgenstern (RFF), Leigh Raymond (Purdue), and Margaret Taylor (Stanford).
The chair holders in Environment and Economy, and Environmental Policy, will research aspects of building an environmentally sustainable economy and shifting towards greener growth, from an economic, policy, legal and/or business perspective, and with policy relevance. They will be part of an inter-disciplinary team at the Institute of the Environment, which is home to the Smart Prosperity Institute, Canada’s world-class environment-economy think tank and research network.
Application open to American citizens only. Please share with your US colleagues and networks!
