Award Year:

Principal Investigator: 
Jonathan Kramer, SESYNC
Katherine Johnson, SESYNC

Specially designed for graduate students interested in the complex interactions between human and natural systems, a two-tiered program offered by SESYNC is intended to support current PhD students in the natural, social, and computational sciences; liberal arts; communications; and business studies in their pursuit of novel, independent synthesis research at our center in Annapolis, MD.

The Socio-Environmental Synthesis Research Proposal Writing Workshop (Tier 1) 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; 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, from September 28–30, 2015. It is intended to maximize progress by graduate students intending to apply to the research opportunities described in Tier 2.

A call for proposals (Tier 2) for independent synthesis research by graduate students will follow the workshop in late 2015. For more information about this program, click here.
