*The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites
applications from early-**career scholars for two-year postdoctoral
fellowships that begin August 2018*.

Synthesis is a research approach that accelerates knowledge production by
distilling or integrating existing data, ideas, 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. *SESYNC
does not fund fellows to collect new field or survey data*. Successful
candidates will use synthesis methods to address a problem arising from, or
associated with, the relationship between humans and the environment. Each
fellow works with a Collaborating Mentor (scholar) of their choosing to
co-develop a synthesis research project.

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*, 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.

Appointments will be through the University of Maryland and fellowship
awardees must be based at SESYNC in Annapolis, Maryland. *The SESYNC
postdoctoral fellowship provides an annual stipend, full University of
Maryland employee benefits, and a small annual travel allowance to attend
meetings or to meet with collaborators.* Postdoctoral fellowships are
awarded for a maximum of two years and include structured mentoring
programs and opportunities to participate in ongoing Center activities.

*The pre-screening application due date is October 27, 2017, 5 p.m. ET!*
