*Third Annual*
*Summer School in Sustainable Climate Risk Management*

*for postdocs and advanced graduate students*
3-7 August 2015 at Penn State University

The Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management (SCRiM
<http://scrimhub.org/about.php>) links an international, 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 climate risk management strategies?”*

As a central part of its educational and research mission, SCRiM hosts an
annual summer school to foster opportunities for collaboration and to
provide a solid foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge,
tools, and methods of the diverse fields participating in the network.

A key focus of the workshop will be developing a common vocabulary to help
foster enhanced cross-disciplinary communication, enabling the possibility
for future collaborative research. Participants will also gain hands-on
experience with key methods and tools including robust decisionmaking, use
of simple models, and analysis of relevant datasets.

Lodging and meals are provided for all participants. In most cases, we are
also able to provide full travel support.

*This program is targeted at advanced graduate students and postdocs.* However,
in special circumstances, we may be willing to consider applications from
other early-career professionals who have recently completed their master’s
or doctoral degrees and are working in SCRiM-relevant fields.
