Socio-Environmental Immersion Postdoctoral Fellow Program

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), located in Annapolis, Maryland, invites applications from early career scholars (≤ 4 years post PhD) for two-year postdoctoral fellowships that begin August 2019. Each Fellow works with a Collaborating Mentor of their choosing that extends the Fellow’s current network of collaborators; the mentor may be affiliated with any organization or institution. Fellows are in residence at SESYNC full time but are provided travel funds to interact with their mentor and attend conferences. 

Successful candidates will use synthesis methods to address a problem arising from, or associated with, the relationship between humans and nature. Priority will be given to projects that have the potential to advance understanding of socio-environmental systems, but the information synthesized may be primarily social or environmental in nature, or some mix.  SESYNC particularly encourages applications from candidates who will take advantage of ecological or geoscience data sets, ongoing experiments, or modeling results, especially if they wish to link their work with social data or theory.

Collaborating Mentors

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) seeks Collaborating Mentors interested in mentoring incoming SESYNC Postdoctoral Fellows and co-developing socio-environmental synthesis research projects with them. The mentor may be affiliated with any organization or institution, and we welcome mentors from universities, NGOs, government agencies, other research institutions or the business sector.

SESYNC Postdoctoral Fellows will use synthesis methods to address a problem arising from, or associated with, the relationship between humans and nature. Priority will be given to projects that have the potential to advance understanding of socio-environmental systems, but the information synthesized may be primarily social or environmental in nature, or some mix.

SESYNC particularly encourages applications from prospective fellows who propose the use of advanced theoretical, computational, and/or mathematical approaches to explore, characterize, and understand the structure and dynamics of socio-environmental systems. SESYNC also encourages applications from candidates who will take advantage of ecological or geoscience data sets, ongoing experiments, or modeling results, particularly if they wish to link their work with social data or theory.
