Fulbright Canada Postdoctoral Scholar Award in Northern Issues, University of Northern British Columbia
Located in the spectacular landscape of northern British Columbia, UNBC is one of Canada’s best small universities, and for its size, is among the most research-intensive universities in Canada. Much of UNBC’s research focuses on the social, economic, environmental and cultural issues of the North. This has led to the establishment of world-class research in such areas as natural resources and the environment; rural, northern and environmental health; and the sustainability of communities. UNBC offers interdisciplinary PhD programs in natural resources and environmental studies, in health sciences and in psychology. Research partnerships with the private sector and public agencies have strengthened UNBC’s role as a resource for the communities of its region. This includes research on the mountain pine beetle, sustainable forest management practices, bio-energy and the bio-economy, environmental remediation, air quality issues, watershed management, local and Aboriginal governance, social and economic development in the North, determinants and delivery of health care and climate change issues.

In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary activities‎.
