      Please forward to anyone you think might be interested:

      University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) seeks applicants for our
      NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) program,
      ?Water in the Urban Environment.? Solutions to complex problems associated
      with the effect of urbanization on the water cycle require integrated
      planning, economic, and ecological approaches, as well as innovations in
      policy-making. This program is training a generation of Ph.D. students to
      understand these linkages and to be prepared to work in multidisciplinary
      teams to improve understanding and management of urban environmental
      systems. This program is particularly interested in recruiting applicants
      with a background or interest in environmental planning and/or policy.

      The program takes advantage of the presence at UMBC of the field
      headquarters of the Baltimore Ecosystem Study (http://beslter.org), one of
      two urban sites in the NSF Long-Term Ecological Research network;
      partnerships with public agencies, nonprofits, and private consultants;
      proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, a coastal ecosystem severely affected by
      urban land use change; and closeness to Washington DC, the heart of
      policy-making in the U.S.

      Applicants for IGERT Traineeships must be US citizens or permanent
      residents. Awardees must be accepted to one of the nine participating PhD
      programs at UMBC. They will receive a stipend of $30,000 per year plus
      $10,500 cost-of-education allowance.

      Applications for Fall 2009 are due February 1, 2009. For further
      information see http://www.umbc.edu/cuere/igert or contact Dr. Bernadette
      Hanlon, IGERT Coordinator at bhanlon1@..., or Prof. Claire Welty,
      IGERT Program Director at weltyc@....

      The UMBC IGERT Program seeks the applications of minorities, women, and
      individuals with disabilities.
