Postdoctoral Fellows Program: Theoretical / Computational Research
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) located in Annapolis, Maryland, invites applications for two-year postdoctoral fellowships that begin on a rolling basis. The Center seeks applicants using theoretical, computational, and/or mathematical approaches to explore, characterize, and understand the structure and dynamics of socio-environmental systems. The successful candidates will lead strongly quantitative research efforts that synthesize understanding at the interface of the social and environmental sciences via models of socio-environmental systems (and their feedbacks) or via computationally intensive analyses of socio-environmental datasets.
In addition to leading independent synthesis research, SESYNC fellows spend part of their time (~30%) on collaborative center activities. SESYNC leadership work with postdoc fellows to co-develop the collaborative activities, which could include such efforts as working on a cross-Pursuit or cross-Theme synthesis project, organizing a workshop, developing an education, policy, or outreach activity, or exploring visualization and other cyber tools.
We welcome applications from PhD-level researchers with a history of quantitative research in the social or environmental sciences, and from researchers with backgrounds in applied mathematics, scientific computation, or a related quantitative discipline who wish to conduct research at the socio-environmental interface.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and evaluated quarterly.
