Dear Doctoral Student,

You are invited to apply for a new summer training workshop to be held June
8-16, 2017 at the University of Texas at El Paso <http://www.utep.edu>. The
National Science Foundation-funded EMBeRS project
<http://embers.cybershare.utep.edu> will host ten PhD students from diverse
disciplines to participate in ten days of specialized training on
conducting interdisciplinary research in teams. Selected students will
gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become the future
leaders of interdisciplinary research teams. Teamwork concepts introduced
will be made more concrete through simulating interdisciplinary teamwork
around water-related topics. This training will strengthen your
professional development and position you for success in interdisciplinary

The National Research Council (2015) report on Enhancing the Effectiveness
of Team Science
identified seven characteristics of team science research that are
benefits, but which entail unique challenges: high diversity; deep
knowledge integration; large team size; goal misalignment; permeable
boundaries; geographic dispersion; and high task interdependence. The
workshop will introduce students to recent research findings on
interdisciplinary teamwork relevant to overcoming these challenges, explore
the implications of these for leading interdisciplinary teams, and provide
hands-on experience working across disciplines using activities designed to
overcome common barriers to integrative research and decision-making. Local
field trips will highlight features unique to this water-stressed region.

PhD students from U.S. institutions in any science, technology,
engineering, or math (STEM) discipline are invited to apply. Applications
are due March 31, 2017. Selections will be made by April 15. All travel,
housing, and meal expenses will be covered by the grant.

More information and application instructions are available here

Thank you for your interest, and hope to see you this summer!
