The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) is excited to offer new professional development and training opportunities specially designed for graduate students interested in conducting research on the complex interactions between human and natural systems.
As part of our SESYNC Graduate Student Research Program, we are now accepting applications from currently-enrolled PhD students in the natural, social, and computational sciences for a Socio-Environmental Synthesis Research Proposal Writing Workshop. This workshop will provide graduate students with:
- introductions to SESYNC, socio-environmental synthesis research, team science, and actionable science;
- networking opportunities to build professional relationships with other students, particularly those from different disciplines interested in the same types of research questions; and
- training sessions on the methods, challenges, and strategies associated with writing successful proposals, especially those related to the type of work SESYNC supports.
The workshop will be held over 2½ days in Annapolis, MD, in January 2014. It is intended to maximize progress by graduate students intending to apply to the research opportunities described at www.sesync.org/graduate-student-themes. Travel to our facilities in Annapolis, MD, accommodations, and food expenses for workshop attendees will be provided by SESYNC.
Deadline for applications: September 20, 2013
