The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowships that begin 1 June 2015. The new Postdoctoral Socio-Environmental Immersion Program will bring early-career scholars to SESYNC to: undertake individual synthesis projects; participate in workshops led by distinguished natural scientists and social scientists; and enhance their collaborative network, computational skills, and understanding of the science–policy nexus. Fellows will undertake synthetic projects focused on ecological systems and environmental change or on social systems and environmental change. Proposed projects can be interdisciplinary, but we also welcome applications that are primarily focused on ecological science or primarily focused on social science. Unique among environmental postdoctoral programs, a learning component of the new SESYNC postdoctoral program will steep Fellows in theory foundational to understanding socio-environmental systems. The core of this experience is a structured series of collaborative workshops led by visiting scholars but tailored to the postdoctoral experience. Periodically during the first year, small groups of distinguished scholars from disciplines important for socio-environmental research will visit SESYNC for several days of seminars, small-group discussions, and one-on-one interactions. During the second year, these scholars will revisit SESYNC for a capstone symposium with the possibility of a resulting synthetic paper(s) with the Fellows. For the 2015 postdoc cohort, the scholars will come from ecology, economics, anthropology, and sociology. Project Co-Development. Fellowship applicants should choose a project idea and work with a prospective Research Collaborator, who will function as a project mentor, to co-develop it. Research Collaborators may be either from a continually updated list of scholars (provided by SESYNC to successfully pre-screened prospective Fellows) who have expressed previous interest in working with a SESYNC postdoc or someone you recruit. SESYNC must approve all potential Research Collaborators to ensure they understand the commitment they are making to your progress and success. Visit www.sesync.org/opportunities/postdoc-collab for additional information on Research Collaborators. Appointments will be through the University of Maryland, and fellowship awardees must be based at SESYNC’s facilities in Annapolis, Maryland.
