Application Deadline: November 2, 2018

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in Annapolis, MD invites proposals from highly qualified graduate students interested in conducting collaborative, socio-environmental synthesis research (i.e. “Graduate Pursuits”).

Graduate Pursuits are supported for a period of 18 months. Such support centers around 3–4 team meetings at SESYNC, but also includes a suite of services ranging from team facilitation to computational and cyber infrastructure resources to science communication.

SESYNC is particularly interested in Graduate Pursuit proposals that bring together diverse backgrounds and disciplines as well as diverse sources of data in novel, integrative ways. Graduate Pursuit proposals that are designed to be applicable or generalizable across multiple locations and scales in addition to those with potential to contribute to decision-making and non-academic communities are also of special interest to SESYNC. 

Informational webinars are one of the ways SESYNC actively facilitates team formation and idea generation in real time. Webinars will be held Monday, September 10 and Wednesday, September 12 from 12:30-2:30pm Eastern Time.

For any other questions about the Graduate Pursuits or SESYNC, please email SESYNC’s Graduate Program Manager, Dr. Nicole Motzer, at
