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.

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;

  • training sessions on the methods, challenges, and strategies associated with writing successful proposals, especially those related to the type of work SESYNC supports; and

  • an overview of the two graduate research Themes, for which SESYNC will solicit proposals following the Networking & Proposal Writing Workshop.

The 2½-day workshop will be held  in Annapolis, MD, from January 15–17, 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 in accordance with our travel policies.
