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 <> 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.

Correspondence should be addressed to:
