Faculty

The faculty of colleges and universities has multiple objectives including education, research and the application of knowledge for the advancement of society. CienciaPR has ample resources to support this multifaceted profession and to share its contributions with the scientific community.

In this section we share resources about: research funding, job opportunities, scientific publications, scientific organizations and others. 

You'll also find all events, messages in the forums and news specifically focused for university faculty. 

Do not forget you can make use of our search for users to establish relationships with other CienciaPR members with similar interests.

Lidia Badarnah: 'Nature provides a huge source of solutions'

Wilfredo Mendez Vazquez's picture

Lidia Badarnah is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Building Technology Program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Badarnah obtained her Ph.D in Biomimetics in Architecture at Delft University of Technology. She has specialized in biologically-inspired strategies for building envelopes adaptation and recently has developed a methodology for the generation of novel biomimetic design concepts. The crossover between architecture and scientific concepts is evident in Badarnah's work that ranges from biology to thermodynamics.

Mónica Ivelisse Feliú-Mójer's picture

Puerto Rican neuroscientist and graduate student David Schwarz is part of Walk Again (Andar du Novo), a project that will allow a paraplegic Brazilian teen to control a robotic exoskeleton with their mind to execute the inaugural kick at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

This event will be historical for many reasons. First, it is the culmination of years of research and the collective work of hundreds of scientists around the world, from engineers, to computer scientists, to neuroscientists.

Second Tertulia CienciaPR: Science Policy

Uldaeliz Trujillo's picture

We continually hear in the news discussion about topics of global significance such as energy or health reforms, national security, global warming, the food crisis, and the fiscal budget and its impact on innovation and competitiveness, among others. Although seemingly unrelated to each other, in order to be resolved all of these issues need to include considerations about science.

Ushuaia and Fairbanks are cities near the tips of the world. 

The capital of Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego province and the Alaskan metropolis don’t share much in common. Except for a cluster of simple wood boxes on poles, and the scientists and swallows who flock to them.
