Dear colleagues,

This is a gentle reminder that the application deadline of the 2017 
Smith School Distinguished Junior Researchers Seminar Program is this 
weekend (July 1, 2017).

I have received a few queries on travel support for invited speakers 
from institutions outside the U.S. With the additional financial 
commitment from Smith Innovation Fund, we are now pleased to remove the 
original constraint on domestic travel within the U.S. and welcome 
applications from junior researchers in the global PSE community. The 
program will cover invited speakers' travel expenses, including local 
transportation, lodging, meals, and airfare (no restriction on the 
invited speakers' home institutions/countries).

To apply, please either send your CV to me ([log in to unmask]) or 
fill the online application form below (takes around 2 minutes):

Please feel free to direct any question to me.

Best regards,

Fengqi You, PhD
Roxanne E. and Michael J. Zak Professor
Cornell University
