*Second Annual*
*Summer School in Sustainable Climate Risk Management*
*for postdocs and advanced graduate students*

*11-15 August 2014*
*Penn State University*

The Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management (SCRiM) 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 will host
a week-long summer school to foster opportunities for collaboration and to
provide advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with a solid
foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and methods of
the diverse fields participating in the network.

Taught by senior researchers in the SCRiM network, the summer school will
offer sessions on Earth system science, policy analysis, uncertainty
quantification, coupled epistemic-ethical analysis, and integrated
assessment. Participants will also gain hands-on experience with key
methods and tools such robust decisionmaking, the use of simple models, and
analysis of relevant datasets. 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
among participants.

While the summer school is designed primarily for advanced graduate
students and postdocs collaborating within the SCRiM network, participants
from other institutions will also find it an enriching experience.
Furthermore, the SCRiM network is open to new members and summer school
participation may provide opportunities to explore the potential for new
collaborations.

To apply, please send an *single PDF file* containing an application letter
(briefly describing your research interests and explaining why you would
like to attend the summer school), a current CV, and contact information
for two references to
summer_school at scrim.psu.edu<http://mailto:summer_school@scrim.psu.edu/>
Applications *should be submitted no later than Monday 26 May 2014* to
receive full consideration. Funding is available to support travel and
accommodations for all participants.
