Science Streams

FIRE's Social Science streams include opportunities for you to engage psychology, neuroscience, sustainability, economics, government and politics, global development, and much more.

Many of these streams are data-intensive and allow you to develop or use computational capacities.  Other streams are interdisciplinary, integrating advanced biological techniques into their research.
