Call for Nominations for Faculty Fellows in Science Communication

UK Center for Appalachian Research in Environmental Sciences (UK-CARES) is pleased to announce the opening of nominations for the first cohort of Faculty Fellows in Science Communication.

This year-long program is designed to provide early career faculty with skills training for communicating science to a broader audience, leading to enhanced capability for outreach and success in research, teaching, and service. Early career faculty at both UK and at other Kentucky colleges or universities with interest in environmental health science and education in Appalachia are eligible to apply.

Participating as a Fellow in Science Communication is a great opportunity for early career faculty to enhance their research and service expectations for promotion and/or tenure by gaining access to community partners in the Appalachian region and networking with UK-CARES faculty, leading to potential opportunities for funding through the UK-CARES Pilot Program. For more information, see the attached flyer.

We invite you to nominate an early career faculty with interest in environmental health science. Interested applicants are also encouraged to self-nominate or to ask a mentor or administrator to make the nomination. 

First-round nominations are due no later than February 16, 2018.
