The Chancellor’s Faculty of Excellence Program at North Carolina State University has recently funded “cluster hires” in various departments. The Cluster Hire in Global Environmental Change and Human Well-Being will provide funding for two new faculty members in the Department of Biology and one in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources. These positions will work in interdisciplinary programs participating in the South East Climate Science Center. More information on these and the other cluster hires can be found on NCSU’s web site:
