Affiliation in IBES is open to all fully-enrolled Brown University graduate students (Masters & PhD) whose research significantly relates (or will relate) to environmental research in the physical sciences, life sciences, social sciences, public health, and/or humanities. Applicants should also be seeking an interdisciplinary environment to develop their ideas, professional skills and networks.
Applications are accepted twice per year, in the fall and spring.
