UCGIS to Support I-GUIDE Community Champions

Based at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), the Institute for Geospatial Understanding through an Integrative Discovery Environment (I-GUIDE, iguide.illinois.edu), is pursuing advances to transform geospatial data-intensive sciences as it integrates AI and cyberGIS, reproducible data-intensive analytics and modeling, FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data principles, and innovative education and workforce development programs. Funded by NSF, this new national institute is enabling geospatial data-driven scientific discovery to better understand the risks and impacts of climate change and disasters, with a particular emphasis on food and water security.

Through its involvement with I-GUIDE, UCGIS is offering an annual opportunity for individuals at its member institutions to participate as they undertake their own short-term project in alignment with certain ongoing I-GUIDE activities. Suitable for PhD students, researchers, or faculty, the selected participants are eligible to receive a small stipend. Through their activities, UCGIS I-GUIDE Community Champions contribute to our outreach goals and advance I-GUIDE’s mission.

For more information and to access the application form, please see https://www.ucgis.org/iguideThe deadline to apply is March 1, 2022.  Decisions will be announced by March 31, and the work conducted by this first cohort of UCGIS I-GUIDE Community Champions would be completed by September 30, 2022 (after which another cohort would begin).
