We’re looking for a Utah Forests Program fellow who is excited to help us protect the natural landscapes of Utah. You’ll spend your summer exploring the beautiful forests and deserts of the Colorado Plateau and camping under the stars, all while doing hands-on ecology and environmental advocacy. The Utah Forests Program works to protect millions of acres of public land by critically examining the way government agencies manage these lands. You’ll help us understand the serious consequences of intense livestock grazing for the native animals and plants that call these landscapes home. Through rigorous fieldwork and well-rounded mentorship, you will hone your skills in scientific research and environmental advocacy. If you want to be a voice for the Colorado Plateau’s vibrant landscapes and wildlife — this is the job for you!

In early 2018 the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah together received a $500,000 Andrew W. Mellon grant to support “Landscape, Land Art, and the American West,” an effort to stimulate research, pedagogy, and engagement with the joint collections and resources of the UMFA and Marriott Library.

The Mellon grant has enabled the UMFA and Marriott Library to initiate the Fellowship in Collections Engagement (FICE) Award. This award provides funding to University of Utah faculty, staff, and students for scholarly or creative research projects which utilize primary source materials in both the UMFA’s and the Marriott Library’s collections. The Fellowship is intended to foster innovative, interdisciplinary, collections-based scholarship and creativity while highlighting the strengths of the UMFA’s and Marriott Library’s collections.

Proposals may request funding from $250 to a maximum of $8,000 for the award cycle beginning August 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020. In general, these funds may not be used for society memberships or the acquisition of hardware, though some kinds of equipment essential for project activities may be admissible. Funding will be considered for all expenses which demonstrably enable the Fellow(s) to perform essential award activities.

We currently have two open positions at Utah Humanities. If you love the humanities and want to work with a small, committed group of people, one of these positions might be the perfect fit for you or someone you know.
