Summary

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 is 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 decision-making, use of simple models, and analysis of relevant datasets.

This program is targeted at advanced graduate students and postdocs. 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. Lodging, meals, and tuition costs are covered for all participants. In most cases, we are also able to provide full travel support.
