Conferences, Fellowships, Forums and Networking Opportunities

SICSS-NYU - From the morning of June 15 to June 20 2020, New York University will sponsor a Summer Institute in Computational Social Science. The purpose of the Summer Institute is to bring together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and beginning faculty interested in computational social science. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived).

The instructional program will involve lectures, group problem sets, and participant-led research projects. There will also be outside speakers who conduct computational social science research in a variety of settings, such as academia, industry, and government. Topics covered include text as data, website scraping, digital field experiments, non-probability sampling, machine learning, and ethics. There will be ample opportunities for students to discuss their ideas and research with the organizers, other participants, and visiting speakers. Because we are committed to open and reproducible research, all materials created by faculty and students for the Summer Institute will be released open source.

Participation is restricted to Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers, and untenured faculty within 7 years of their Ph.D. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and fields of study, especially applicants from groups currently under-represented in computational social science. About twenty participants will be invited, and participants are expected to fully attend and participate in the entire one-week program.

Application materials are due by midnight EST on April 15, 2020. Find more information here.

SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund - The SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund (“TAF”) provides funding to support the advancement of SUNY innovations from the lab to the marketplace. TAF support targets the critical milestones needed to demonstrate that an innovation is worthy of external investment. The aim is to identify opportunities where small investments will provide significant impacts on making SUNY innovations available to the public. Different from fundamental research, TAF investments support proof-of-concept and technology development projects to validate the commercial feasibility of SUNY technology. TAF’s goal is to facilitate the translation of SUNY technology into marketable products and/or services by enhancing strategic academic-industry partnerships and building new entrepreneurial ventures. Faculty, staff, and students from all disciplines and campuses are encouraged to submit proposals for SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund Class of 2020 funding. The proposal submission deadline is May 6, 2020.

All proposals require the review and participation of your campus administration prior to submission.  To be certain that you adhere to any local proposal submission deadlines and requirements, we urge you to immediately contact your technology transfer office and/or office of sponsored programs if you are interested in applying for TAF Class of 2020 funding. Find more information as well as application and administrative guidelines here.

NASA Climate Change Research Initiative: STEM Teacher Recruitment Notice. The NASA Climate Change Research Initiative – CCRI is a yearlong STEM engagement opportunity for STEM educators to work directly with NASA scientists, lead research teams and develop STEM curriculum for their current classes. Educators participating in this opportunity will become associate researchers at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) and STEM education experts who will integrate NASA education resources and content into their classroom while improving STEM education within their community. During the fall and spring term of CCRI the research team will consist of NASA Principal Investigators who will lead graduate student research assistants and high school STEM educators to become immersed in a NASA science research area of study related to climate change. During the spring semester, the graduate student research assistant and high school STEM educator will continue to perform NASA research. Additionally, the high school STEM educator will develop an Applied Research STEM Curriculum Portfolio, which will integrate components of their research into a comprehensive unit plan that utilizes NASA education resources while aligning instruction of NASA Science and STEM curriculum to the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. The teacher will then implement the STEM curriculum into their classrooms and provide community outreach STEM engagement events related to their NASA research study. The fall and spring term will not conflict with the educators’ primary schedule, roles or responsibilities at their school site.

During the summer session, the primary research team will add an undergraduate intern and high school intern to the CCRI research team. The STEM educator will lead and work collaboratively on a full time basis to complete the research project, create a power point presentation and a scientific poster that will be presented at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and other regional symposiums. The final symposium may have participants from other government agencies, such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the United States Department of Education (USDE) and the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and many others.
