iSEE Seeking Next Levenick Resident Scholar in Sustainability Leadership

Inaugural Levenick Resident Scholar in Sustainability Leadership Natalie Kofler, a bioethicist who founded Editing Nature, delivers a MillerComm lecture on the University of Illinois campus in Fall 2019.

The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications and nominations for the Stuart L. and Nancy J. Levenick Resident Scholar in Sustainability Leadership for the 2020-21 academic year.

This is the second year of this visiting scholar program, intended to bring experts from other universities, the private sector, and nonprofit organizations to share fresh perspectives and innovations with the University of Illinois community.

Applications for the Spring 2021 semester are welcome from scholars in a broad range of disciplines related to sustainability and the environment — including the biological sciences and physical sciences, engineering, the social sciences, and the humanities.

In partnership between iSEE and the university’s Department of Natural Resource and Environmental Sciences, Resident Scholars are expected to pursue their scholarship while interacting extensively with students and faculty across campus to promote multi-disciplinary research, education, and outreach. A course offering at the senior or graduate level is encouraged but not mandatory.

The duration and schedule of residency are negotiable and can range from two weeks to a full semester or more. The Resident Scholar will be provided a stipend and travel expenses.

Those interested in applying, or nominating others, for the Levenick Resident Scholar position should contact Professor Jeffrey Brawn, the Levenick NRES Chair in Sustainability Leadership, at
