The Gallagher Fellowship adds to the generous support provided by the Gallagher family to the Department of Geoscience at the University of Calgary. The goal of the Gallagher Fellowship is to enable the Faculty of Science to attract researchers, practitioners and experts from around the globe for a one to three month fellowship with a view of establishing research relationships with our geoscience scholars.
In addition to accelerating, deepening, and broadening research in the Department of Geoscience, the Fellow will enhance experiential learning and innovative teaching within the Faculty of Science and provide our undergraduate and graduate students with access to scholarly leaders.
This opportunity could enable scholars who are on leave or sabbatical from their home institution to come to the University of Calgary to:
engage in collaborative research,
form research networks,
engage with our students,
initiate larger research grant applications,
deliver public presentations, and
produce peer reviewed publications.
The Fellowship is intended not only to attract the very best in the field to Calgary, but will also serve to raise the profile of the university internationally, build academic networks globally, and bring a diverse perspective to students, faculty members and community members in Calgary.
Applications should include:
A cover letter that details the proposed timeline, budget (which must be spent in accordance with University regulations, but could include stipend, travel, and/or research expenses), and proposed fellowship activities;
An updated CV including a list of publications;
The names of at least two references
Applications and any questions related to the fellowship should be sent via email to the chair of the Gallagher Fellowship Search Committee, Dr. Benjamin Tutolo (firstname.lastname@example.org)
