Postdoc Fellowship Opportunities at SESYNC

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites applications 
from early career scholars (≤ 4 years post PhD) for two-year postdoctoral 
fellowships that begin August 2018. Each fellow works with a Collaborating 
Mentor (scholar) of their choosing to co-develop a synthesis research project. 

Successful candidates will use synthesis methods to address a problem arising 
from, or associated with, the relationship between humans and the environment. 
Synthesis is a research approach that accelerates knowledge production by 
distilling or integrating existing data, ideas, theories, and/or methods to 
draw more reliable or generalizable conclusions and to reveal novel areas of 
study. Regardless of approach, fellows' projects take advantage of existing 
data/information; SESYNC does not fund fellows to collect new field or survey 
data. Priority will be given to projects that have the potential to advance 
understanding of socio-environmental systems, but the synthesis may be 
primarily social or environmental in nature, or some mix. 

Prospective fellows who propose the use of advanced theoretical, computational, 
and/or mathematical approaches or the use of Long-term Ecological Research 
(LTER) and other long-term datasets to study the structure and dynamics of 
socio-environmental systems are particularly encouraged to apply.

Check out sesync.us/postdoc2018 for more details and to apply.


Zero-Deforestation Supply Chain Postdoc 

SESYNC also invites applications from early career scholars for a two-year 
postdoctoral fellowship that begins in January 2018. The fellow will be in 
residence at SESYNC in Annapolis, Maryland as a full participant in SESYNC's 
Postdoctoral Immersion Program. The selected individual will collaborate on a 
SESYNC Pursuit focused on zero-deforestation commitments, commodity flows, and 
land use change in South America. Check out sesync.us/supplychain for more 
information.

Please consider applying or share with your colleagues!

Thanks,
Emily
