2011 call for Smithsonian Interdisciplinary Post-doctoral Fellowship
The Office of Fellowships (Undersecretary of Science at the Smithsonian Institution) is offering an Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowship in the area of stable isotope sciences. Research proposals must integrate the use of stable isotopes (2H/1H, 13C/12C, 15N/14N, and 18O/16O) into their specific research questions. The successful applicant will conduct analyses at one of the two Pan-Institutional isotope facilities (OUSS/MCI Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometry Facility in Suitland, MD or at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama City, Panama). Applicants interested in this fellowship are strongly encouraged to contact potential advisors/hosts at any of the Smithsonian's various Museums and Research Units prior to proposal preparation and submission. Please consult the research staff listed for the Museum, Research Units, and Offices at the links to Smithsonian Opportunities for Research and Study below.
Applicants must propose to conduct research in-residence for a period of 12months, at least 4 months of which will be spent on-site at the MCI or STIR laboratory. Applicants must have completed or be near completion of the Ph.D. Recipients who have not completed the Ph.D. at the time of application must provide proof of completion of the degree before the fellowship begins. Please go to http://www.si.edu/research+study for details on the SI fellowship program. Applications must be submitted by Jan. 15, 2011. Access to the online application system and information regarding the necessary materials can be found at http://www.si.edu/ofg/Applications/SIFELL/SIFELLapp.htm
