** Call for NASA-MSU Award Applications **
With support from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Michigan State University (MSU), NASA-MSU Professional Enhancement Awards (up to $800 each) are given to students, postdocs, and junior researchers (e.g., assistant professors) to cover expenses associated with attending the meeting of US-IALE (U.S. Regional Association of the International Association for Landscape Ecology) in Asheville, NC, April 3-7, 2016 ( <http://www.usiale.org/asheville2016> www.usiale.org/asheville2016).
The application package includes a cover letter, application form, abstract (as it was submitted to the US-IALE meeting site), resume/CV, and budget. Applications are judged based on the merits of the applicants' abstracts, financial needs, and professional backgrounds and goals.
Presentations (oral or poster) should focus on telecoupling (environmental and socioeconomic interactions over distances, such as human and animal migration, species dispersal, species invasion, disease spread, sound/noise transmission, spread of pollutants and wastes, trade of goods and products, flows of ecosystem services, environmental and hydrological flows, foreign investment, technology transfer, water transfer, and tourism). Topics may include applications of the telecoupling framework to address issues across landscapes or coupled human and natural systems (e.g., dynamics, pattern, process, structure, function, and sustainability). For more information about telecoupling, please see http://csis.msu.edu/telecoupling .
Applicants from around the world (except former award recipients) are encouraged to apply.
The application deadline is December 21, 2015.
More information about the NASA-MSU Program is available at the web site (http://csis.msu.edu/news/2016_nasa_msu_award ) and application form is available at ( <http://csis.msu.edu/form/nasa-msu-app> http://csis.msu.edu/form/nasa-msu-app).
