Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Application Deadline Approaching for 2017 Scientist in Residency Fellowship Awards at the Sitka Sound Science Center - Polar and Subarctic Scientists of All Disciplines - March 21, 2016: There are only ten days left in the application period for 2017 Polar Scientist in Residency Fellowships (PSIRF) at the Sitka Sound Science Center in Sitka, Alaska! This program, funded by the National Science Foundation to attract pre-eminent polar and subarctic scientists to Sitka, offers several one month-long fellowships for polar and subarctic scientists each year. Expenses for travel, one month of lodging, per diem and a small honorarium will be provided to each fellow. PSIRF is limited to US Citizens and is intended for mid-career scientists (not graduate students). Scientists live on the Sheldon Jackson Campus, now owned and operated by the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, and are provided office and laboratory space at the Science Center. The short sabbatical will allow scientists undisturbed time that can be used in a variety of ways: data analysis, manuscript preparation, experimentation, collaboration, or simply thoughtful process. At the same time, Fellows will learn what Sitka has to offer researchers in terms of logistical support, research opportunities and resources. PSIRF Fellows will spend a week of their residency in outreach and education activities to share their work in local schools and through other community forums, such as public library programs, radio programs, and science cafes. They will give a lecture to the general community through the Natural History Seminar series supported by the Sitka Charitable Trust and the University of Alaska Southeast. Fellows will also be provided guidance on best practices for communicating science to a public audience in rural Alaska. The five year NSF award is from the Office of Polar Programs. UAS Associate Professor Jan Straley is the Principal Investigator for the project. Lauren Bell is the Director of the program.
