A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change
Beginning this fall, a new workshop series will be held at Princeton University to focus on dendroclimatology and the reconstruction of past temperature, precipitation and environmental changes from natural and documentary archives. The intensive workshops are considered entry-level and geared towards History and Archaeology graduate students and junior faculty, from Princeton as well as from other universities, and require no previous knowledge of the subjects. The workshop instructors will be renowned scholars Jürg Luterbacher from Justus Liebig University, Giessen (Germany), and Ulf Büntgen of the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL.
Interested parties should submit the following:
1. A letter of application with statement of interest (up to 500 words)
3. A letter of recommendation, sent directly to Jayne Bialkowski, PIIRS
All information should be emailed to Jayne Bialkowski at PIIRS at Princeton University by 5 p.m., July 20, 2015. The subject line of the email should read, “Application for Dendroclimatology Workshop.” No applications will be considered after this time. Successful applicants will be notified in late July.
The workshop is free. Princeton University will cover the costs of accommodations and subsistence for all admitted applicants. Attendees will be expected to cover their own travel and transportation costs.
