ForestGEO fellowship and grant program

The Forest Global Earth Observatory (ForestGEO), previously known as Center for Tropical Forest Science (CTFS), is a global network of forest research sites and scientists dedicated to the study of tropical and temperate forest function and diversity. The multi-institutional network comprises 74 forest research sites across the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. ForestGEO monitors the growth and survival of approximately 7 million trees and nearly 13,000 species that occur in the forest research sites. ForestGEO also supports initiatives in the forest sites to monitor climate, carbon flux, vertebrates, insects, soil microorganisms, and much more.

Fellowships and Training Opportunities at ForestGEO:

ForestGEO supports postdoctoral fellowships for early-career researchers to conduct independent research projects designed to answer a specific research question relevant to ForestGEO’s science goals.

ForestGEO’s current postdoctoral fellowship projects encompass a variety of research topics related to advancing the science of forest structure dynamics, including plant-water relations and forest function, tree mortality, species’ life histories, and above-ground biomass dynamics.

Fellowships are awarded from ForestGEO funds or by grants aimed at training the next generation of forest scientists. For example, the Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments-Tropics (NGEE-Tropics) is a ten-year, multi-institutional project funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science. ForestGEO has received NGEE-Tropics funding to develop an understanding of how tropical forest carbon balance and climate system feedbacks will respond to changing environmental drivers of the 21st century.

2022 ForestGEO Research Grants:

Students and early-career researchers (researchers who have completed their PhD within the last seven years) who are working directly in any ForestGEO Forest Dynamics Site, analyzing site data, or generating complementary data that strengthens ForestGEO programs are eligible to apply. Both social scientists and natural scientists are encouraged to apply. In rare cases, highly advanced undergraduate students will be considered. Applicants of all nationalities are encouraged to apply.

Priority will be given to researchers with less access to other institutional funds, projects that include multiple sites, and projects that include a strong educational/capacity-building component.

Budget Information:

Research projects up to $15,000 USD will be considered.

Funding is restricted to expenses directly related to field research, laboratory research, and data analysis. Examples of eligible expenses include travel, living expenses during fieldwork, supplies, research assistance, and publication fees.

Funding is NOT available for salary and/or fringe benefits of the applicant, indirect costs for institutional support, undergraduate or graduate study costs (e.g., tuition, textbooks, fees), non-project personnel, or travel to meetings or conferences.
