World Social Science Fellows

World Social Science Fellows

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: The International Social Science Council (ISSC) calls for applications from outstanding early career social and other scientists around the world to become World Social Science Fellows.

Deadline: 15 July 2013

  The World Social Science Fellows  will participate in an interdisciplinary World Social Science Seminar on Risk Interpretation and Action: Decision-making under conditions of uncertainty, December 7-15, 2013, in Wellington and Christchurch, New Zealand. Up to thirty WSS Fellows will be selected to participate in this seminar.

Along with the Fellows, a number of leading thinkers will be involved in the seminar. David Johnston (Massey University/GNS Science and IRDR) is the main scientific convenor, and joining him will be Christine Kenney (Edith Cowan University), Richard Eiser (Sheffield University), Douglas Paton (University of Tasmania), and Allan Lavell (FLASCO), as well as a range of other scientists and relevant policy makers.

As with the previous World Social Science Fellows seminar, work will start at the seminar, but it will not end there. Fellows will be expected to produce a co-authored report of seminar discussions, which will be submitted to a peer reviewed publication. Fellows will also be encouraged to take discussions forward in other publications and research projects. There will be opportunities for further involvement in activities around disaster risk and interpretation.
