Dear Colleagues, 
 
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is pleased to present the opening of our awards catalog for the 2021-2022 academic year. Our program offers short-term teaching, research or combination teaching and research awards in over 130 countries. 
 
This postdoctoral research award is for scholars interested in water security research. Research will focus on aquifer mapping and groundwater mapping. The project may lead to the launch of a satellite-borne radar imaging technology with wide applications for understanding climate change on our planet and water traces on arid planets like Mars. 
 
The visiting scholar will interact with some of the PhD students, suggesting options, research pathways, hypotheses, and other tutorial activities, and supervising presentations and seminars. Parthenope University is eager to support the Fulbright Scholar in her/his research activity in close collaboration with Italian colleagues with the possibility of submitting jointly authored papers. 
 
As a research chair you will conduct your own research, work collaboratively with new colleagues, guest lecture at university courses, mentor students, lecture in public venues, network, and promote your research while representing the Fulbright program. There are multiple chairs to choose from which range from Interdisciplinary sustainability solutions to environmental policy.
