The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE), in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES), invites applications and nominations for the Stuart L. and Nancy J. Levenick Resident Scholar in Sustainability Leadership for the 2022-23 academic year at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
This will be the third 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 2022-23 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.
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.
Past visiting scholars included molecular biologist and bioethicist Natalie Kofler, Director of Editing Nature; activist and author Catherine Coleman Flowers, Founder of the Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice; and University of Michigan nuclear energy researcher Denia Djokić, an Associate with Harvard’s “Managing the Atom” project.
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 email@example.com.
