The Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network Office recently announced a new opportunity for synthesis groups drawing on LTER data.

In the 2019 competition, the LNO expects to award 2-4 synthesis working groups at a funding level of up to $55,000 per year for up to two years.

Proposals may be submitted by individuals of any nationality who hold a position in an academic institution, freestanding research institution, scientific society, governmental or policy agency, non-governmental organization or a consortium of such institutions. Working group members should include one or more LTER researchers who are familiar with the LTER sites and data that will be used in the analysis. Synthesis research generally requires a large effort to integrate multiple datasets, thus, inclusion of one or more LTER site information managers who are deeply familiar with LTER datasets is encouraged.

Required proposal elements and instructions are explained here.

Proposals are due at October 23, 2019, 5:00 p.m.
