The Western Academy for Advanced Research invites Western faculty members to submit Letters-of-Intent (LOI) for its February 2023 competition. The Western Academy’s mission is to seek solutions to major issues facing humanity through a period of focused enquiry (up to one year) that combines the full spectrum of scholarship and experience at Western with that from around the world. The Western Academy facilitates the selection and funding of themes and core team members (Western Fellows, Visiting Western FellowsWestern Academy Postdoctoral Scholars) that address this mission. Current themes include

Climate Resilient Infrastructure and Buildings

Mathematics of Neural Networks

LOIs received before noon, February 27, 2023 will receive feedback from WAFAR’s Steering Committee to help inform preparation of full applications.  Full applications will be due on June 12, 2023.

More information and access to the LOI is available on the Western Academy website
