Deadline: September 24, 2021

From September 16 to 24 registration is open for the selection processes of postdoctoral, master's, and scientific initiation scholarship holders to work in the project "USP in the community: development of integrated systems on food, water, and energy in educational spaces," coordinated by Professor Tadeu Malheiros and financed by the Dean of Culture and University Extension (PRCEU) in the context of the UN SDG Call 02/2021 Social inclusion and diversity at USP and in municipalities on its campuses.

The project aims to develop educational actions that contribute to the SDG 4 (quality education) and, across the board, with other SDGs of the 2030 Agenda through the participation of USP's community and Basic Education agents.

The IEA, through its São Carlos Center, will host a postdoctoral fellow according to this call (Portuguese only). The demand is related to the search for scientific contribution in the development, implementation, and validation of educational kits for teaching sustainability, consisting of a system for using rainwater, solar energy, vegetable garden, and composting, in formal and non-formal spaces of Basic Education learning, as a living laboratory for research, teaching, and extension. Educational materials will be developed and fostered with the aim of disseminating knowledge and skills, and promoting culture for sustainable development. The expect results are to contribute to the sustainable production of food in the school community and its surroundings, disseminate knowledge about the sustainable system to different audiences, involve USP in the undertaking of actions that have a social impact on the community, and reduce social inequalities regarding the accessibility of food, water, and energy.

More information about the program, including other open calls, are available here (Portuguese only).
