*SCRiM Summer Scholars 2014*
*a 9-week summer research opportunity at Penn State University*
*for undergraduates and early-career graduate students*

The Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management
links a transdisciplinary team of climate scientists, economists,
philosophers, statisticians, engineers, and policy analysts to answer the
question, “*What are sustainable, scientifically sound, technologically
feasible, economically efficient, and ethically defensible strategies for
managing the risks associated with climate change?*”

SCRiM invites undergraduates and beginning (first- and second-year)
graduate students interested in climate change, sustainability, risk
management, and/or decisionmaking under uncertainty to
propose summer research projects centered on SCRiM themes. Appropriate
projects might include modeling experiments using simple Earth system
and/or economic models, analyses of geophysical datasets (observed or
modeled), or meta-analyses based on synthesis of existing literature.
Although projects will be largely self-directed, participants will be
mentored and supported by SCRiM researchers as they develop and execute
their research agenda.

The program runs for 9 weeks, starting 2 June 2014. Housing, travel
support, and a stipend of $4500 is provided for all participants.

Students studying in the following disciplines would be well-positioned for
the program:

   - Applied Mathematics
   - Civil & Environmental Engineering
   - Computer Science
   - Economics
   - Environmental Science
   - Geography
   - Geosciences / Geology
   - Meteorology / Atmospheric Science
   - Oceanography
   - Operations Research
   - Philosophy
   - Physics
   - Statistics

This is a competitive opportunity with a limited number of openings. To
apply, please send a single PDF file to
scholars at scrim.psu.edu<http://mailto:scholars@scrim.psu.edu/>
a cover letter (briefly explaining your interest in the program and what
you hope to gain from the experience), a one-page research proposal, a
current CV, transcripts (unofficial acceptable), and contact information
for two references. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis
and *should
be submitted no later than Monday 28 April 2014* to receive full
consideration. Women, members of underrepresented groups, and students from
small colleges are especially encouraged to apply.
