Opportunities

OpportunitiesThe following funding opportunities are currently available at SESYNC:
Opportunities
Postdoctoral Socio-Environmental Immersion Program 2015
Deadline: Nov 03, 2014

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), located in Annapolis, Maryland, invites applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowships that begin June 1, 2015.

Postdoctoral Fellows Program: Food Systems Resilience to Climate Change
Deadline: Oct 01, 2014

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), located in Annapolis, Maryland, invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship beginning early January 2014 that will be a part of a new SESYNC–USDA collaboration to catalyze data-driven research on food systems resilience to climate change.

Collaborative Research with SESYNC Postdocs
Deadline: Sep 15, 2014

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) seeks Research Collaborators (PhD required) interested in mentoring incoming SESYNC Postdoctoral Fellows and co-developing socio-environmental synthesis research projects with them.

Data-Intensive Analysis and/or Modeling for Socio-Environmental Synthesis
Deadline: Aug 22, 2014

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites proposals for data-intensive analysis and/or modeling projects that advance socio-environmental synthesis research. This funding opportunity covers two types of projects: (1) The pursuit of novel, question-driven, and synthetic research into linkages between social and environmental system dynamics that would not be otherwise possible without the use of computationally-intensive data analysis and/or modeling; OR (2) The development of advanced data analysis and/or modeling tools that enable cutting-edge socio-environmental synthesis research.

Theoretical / Computational Graduate Research Assistantships

Full-time graduate research assistantships are available for students working on theoretical, computational, or mathematical problems relevant to the dynamics of socio-environmental systems. The Center seeks applications from current PhD students from any discipline who have passed their qualifying exams and are undertaking strongly quantitative investigations at the interface of the social and environmental sciences.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and evaluated quarterly.

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 on a rolling basis and evaluated quarterly.

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 on a rolling basis and evaluated quarterly.

Sabbatical & Research Fellowships

Sabbatical & Research Fellowships (2–12 months) support social, environmental, or cyberinfrastructure research activities that will advance the mission of the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC). Sabbatical Fellows are considered Visiting Scientists at the University of Maryland and therefore are not eligible for benefits under the USM system; benefits would continue through the fellow’s home institution.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and evaluated quarterly.

Policy & Practice Fellowships

Policy and practice fellows propose short-term visits (<2 months) in which they interact with the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) community in Annapolis, MD.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and evaluated quarterly.

Propose a Workshop

Workshops hosted at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) are single meetings with up to 30 participants that focus on a broad topic or a set of related topics, summarizing/synthesizing the state of the topic, identifying future directions, or exploring novel ideas. Organizers (one or two leads) identify up to half of the participants with the remaining participant slots filled through open application. SESYNC will provide support (travel, lodging, and meals) for workshop attendees.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and evaluated twice per year.
