Dear Colleagues and Students, We are writing to you today as the Board of Directors…
The University of British Columbia’s Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies is inviting applications for its 2021/22 Wall Scholars Program on the theme of Complex Systems. The program will support scholars at various career stages for a research residency at the Wall Institute and provides buyout funds for teaching and administrative release. Full information about the program is available here: https://pwias.ubc.ca/program/wall-scholars-program. The deadline is soon: Nov. 6, 2020.
From the description:
Applications are invited from accomplished scholars and thinkers from UBC and other academic institutions world-wide to the 2021-22 Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies Wall Scholar Program.
Successful scholars will spend a year in residence at the Institute focusing on the theme of Complex Systems. The 2021-2022 Wall Scholar cohort will explore novel ways to integrate and enrich our knowledge of dynamic systems and how we can bring about positive change within them. Understanding complex systems with their dynamics and key properties presents unique challenges and opportunities for improving society and our ways of being.
The program brings together scholars who seek to take time away from their regular activities to explore new ways of thinking and build new connections with scholars outside of their field. We encourage applications from all disciplines, including but not limited to Medicine, Science and Engineering, and the Performing Arts.
Due to expected COVID-19 international travel restrictions for 2021-22, we particularly encourage applications from scholars across Canada who would be willing to relocate to Vancouver for the year in residence.
Wall Scholars will be in residence for the period August 1, 2021 to July 31, 2022.
