The NSF EMERGE Biology Integration Institute seeks post-baccalaureate scientists from any career stage - graduate student, postdoc, technician, faculty, and others - to train and engage in the multidisciplinary science of how ecosystems are responding to climate change.
Attendees will learn & implement 5 core competencies of Interdisciplinary Ecosystem Science:
- Foundational Science, spanning: biomolecules; isotopes; biotic and abiotic interactions; math in biology; representing biology in models; remote sensing; data management; gene regulation & acclimation; genetic diversity & adaptation; community assembly
- Science of Team Science
- Mentor Training
- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
- Science Communication
Attendees will meet in person for 1 week, virtually daily for a second week, and then meet as a cohort regularly over the following year to apply their trainings and collaboratively develop a paper.
This training, research, and professional development program is co-mentored by diverse EMERGE faculty, and spans scientific scales from microbes, to plants, to remote sensing, and key team science skills including communication, mentoring, and equity.
Note that in order to participate and receive funding from the National Science Foundation, you must be a US citizen, US national, or permanent resident. (Interested non-residents/citizens with funding may be considered as space permits, and should apply indicating their self-funded status.)
