Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Post-Doctoral Fellowship Announcement from The Ohio State University Byrd Polar Research Center The Byrd Polar Research Center of The Ohio State University announces the 2013 Byrd Fellowship Program for post-doctoral researchers. This program was established through a major gift from the Byrd Foundation in memory of Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd and Marie Ames Byrd, his wife. This program provides fellowships at The Ohio State University for postdoctoral researchers with superior academic backgrounds who are pursuing advanced research on topics relevant to polar and alpine environments. Post-doctoral fellows must have received their Ph.D. within five years of selection. Except for fieldwork and other research activities that require absence from campus, Byrd Fellows are expected to be in residence at the Byrd Polar Research Center (BPRC) during the tenure of their fellowship. Applicants should visit the BPRC web page <http://bprc.osu.edu/> and contact specific members of the Byrd Center in advance of submitting their application to discuss possible projects and how their proposed research might complement existing BPRC programs which cover a wide range of disciplines. This fellowship is limited to research of mutual interest to both the fellow and his/her Byrd Center mentor. Post-doctoral awards will be for one and a half years. A stipend of up to $42,000.00 per year, and a research and travel allowance of $5,000 will be provided. Applications and nominations should be sent to the Byrd Fellowship Committee and need to be received no later than March 15, 2013. Each application should include a statement of general research interests, a description of the specific research to be conducted during the term of the fellowship, curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference. Reference letters and a letter of support from the BPRC mentor should be requested by the applicant but sent directly to BPRC. Fellowship appointments may start on the first day of any month between August 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.
