Opportunities



The following funding opportunities are currently available at SESYNC:

Opportunities
May 2017 RFP: S-E Synthesis Research for Graduate Students
Deadline: May 26, 2017

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) located in Annapolis, Maryland seeks proposals for independent, collaborative team-based synthesis research by graduate student teams.

Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data
Deadline: May 26, 2017

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) will host a nine-day short course August 15 - 25, 2017 covering basic principles of using Bayesian models to gain insight from data.

Propose a Pursuit
Deadline: May 15, 2017

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites proposals for collaborative team-based research (Pursuits) addressing a pressing socio-environmental problem.

Propose a Workshop
Deadline: May 15, 2017

Workshops are single meetings of up to ~25 participants that focus on a broad topic or a set of related topics related to socio-environmental science and/or socio-environmental problems. Workshops may summarize and/or synthesize the state of the topic and/or identify future directions that have the potential to lead to a larger synthesis effort. We are particularly interested in workshops that bring together new combinations of individuals and disciplines.

SESYNC-Georgetown Postdoctoral Fellowship: Network Modeling for Wildlife Conservation
Deadline: May 08, 2017

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) and Georgetown University invite applications for a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship opportunity, focused on Network Modeling for Wildlife Conservation. The postdoc opportunity is for August 2017 through August 2019, and is open to applicants who have completed their PhD in a relevant field no later than July 1, 2017 and no earlier than July 1, 2014.

Summer Institute on Cyberinfrastructure for SES
Deadline: Apr 25, 2017

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites applications from small teams of researchers for the fourth annual Summer Institute on Cyberinfrastructure for SES. The workshop will be held July 18-21 at SESYNC in Annapolis, Maryland.

Introduction to Social Network Analysis: June 2017
Deadline: Apr 24, 2017

This 5-day short course will serve as an introduction to the theory and practice of social network analysis (SNA). Where standard statistical analysis assumes that observations on different entities (people, organizations, animals, etc.) are independent, SNA looks to the relationships among these observations to try to explain why this configuration of relationships might exist, or how this network structure explains other attributes of the network. 

Sabbatical & Research Fellowships

Sabbatical & Research Fellowships are awarded to established scholars who will be in residence at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) or the Resources for the Future facility for 2–12 months to undertake activities that will advance socio-environmental synthesis research.

Applications are accepted by May 15 or October 15 for biannual evaluation.

Short-Term Visitors

Short-term visitors are scholars in residence at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) from two weeks to two months who work on synthesis projects.

Applications are accepted by May 15 or October 15 for biannual evaluation.

Policy & Practice Fellowships

Policy & Practice Fellows propose short-term visits (<2 months) in which they interact with the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) community in Annapolis, Maryland.

Applications are accepted by May 15 or October 15 for biannual evaluation.

Propose a Short Course

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) supports short courses on topics relevant to socio-environmental systems, the synthesis process, data management and analysis, or cyberinfrastructure tools. Short-courses are typically 3–10 days in duration.

Applications are accepted by May 15 or October 15 for biannual evaluation.

Maryland Fellows

Maryland Fellows are scholars from University System of Maryland (USM) universities or other institutions within commuting distance who apply to work at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) during periods of leave or sabbatical from their home institutions.

Applications are accepted by May 15 or October 15 for biannual evaluation.
