The Climate Hubs Fellows Program (CHFP) has been announced (
http://go.usa.gov/3J4GA). *The deadline for applications is November 20th*.
The CHFP program will hire fellows as temporary federal employees to work
with the regional Hubs and Sub-Hubs to accomplish their mission. Fellows
from this program will obtain experience developing on-the-ground solutions
for vulnerabilities faced by operational land managers and learn to work
with established research and outreach communities. Applications to the
program (see announcement for details), should be sent to
ClimateHubs at oce.usda.gov. Fellows should identify their climate hub
regional preference, or if they are willing to be placed where there is the
greatest need. Regions can be found on the hubs website
www.usda.gov/climatehubs. Applications will be screened by a panel at the
national level and the top 20 to 30 candidates will be put forward to the
Regional Hub Directors for consideration.
