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. Applications and
further information is available at the SSSC website <>

Deadline for application is April 1, 2016
