DRRN seeking two highly motivated UBC graduate students for its inaugural Disaster Resilience Graduate Fellowship. The fellows will support the DRRN by analyzing the state of disaster research in British Columbia.

They will work together to conduct a transdisciplinary literature review about disaster preparedness, response, and governance in British Columbia from a hybrid socio-technical perspective. This review will provide a strong foundation to develop research questions and methodologies which can be implemented through external grant applications and will ultimately be revised as a publication in an appropriate transdisciplinary journal.
