The coral group at the Pennsylvania State University invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships (see details below). We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in coral symbioses, genomics, physiology, ecology and evolution. For more information on marine research at PSU and links to PSU coral lab webpages please visit www.cmast.psu.edu. Outstanding recent PhD's should email a detailed CV including the names of 3 references by 5 Dec to Iliana Baums (baums at psu.edu), Roberto Iglesias-Prieto (iglesiasprieto at gmail.com), Chuck Fisher (cfisher at psu.edu), Todd LaJeunesse (tcl3 at psu.edu), or Monica Medina Munoz (momedinamunoz at gmail.com) to be considered for nomination.
The Eberly College of Science at Penn State University invites nominees for the Eberly Research Fellowship program. Eberly Fellowships are designed to attract exceptional early career scientists to Penn State to enhance their career goals in the vibrant, highly collaborative environment of the Eberly College of Science and the broader STEM community of Penn State University. The Eberly College of Science which includes the Departments of Astronomy & Astrophysics, Biology, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics, ranks in the top 10 universities in the U.S. and has annual research expenditures exceeding $106M. Each of the seven departments is expecting to appoint one or more Eberly Fellows. Nominations for early career scientists with exceptional promise in basic research in physics, chemistry, biology, molecular biology, astronomy, mathematics, and statistics and/or applied research in health, energy, materials, or the environment are encouraged. Interdisciplinary as well as traditional disciplinary research is encouraged. Fellows who wish to also gain training and experience in teaching may elect to receive mentored teaching experience. Eberly Fellow advisors must hold their primary appointment in one of the seven departments of the Eberly College of Science. Co-advisors and cross-disciplinary research are also supported.
Eligibility and Appointment
Applicants must have received a doctoral degree in one of the sciences, statistics, or mathematics within the past three years. Current doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows at Penn State are not eligible. Eberly Research Fellowships may be held from 1-3 years with annual appointments conditional on satisfactory performance. Fellows will receive a stipend of $65,000 and $5,000 per year in discretionary funds, which can be used for travel and other research expenses.
Nomination and Applications
Nominations will be accepted from faculty advisors, graduate program chairs, department chairs, or others who can attest to the nominee’s potential as a scientist. Nominations of women and under-represented minorities are strongly encouraged. The nomination deadline is December 15 for appointments beginning 6-12 months later. Nominations should sent to research-fellows at psu .edu
The Eberly Research Fellowship Selection Committee will select the nominees who will then be requested to submit their applications by January 15, 2017. Applications will include (1) a biographical sketch – including publications, accepted, and submitted manuscripts, (2) three letters of reference including one from the doctoral advisor, (3) research statement summarizing research accomplishments and research that you intend to pursue at Penn State, (4) names of one or more potential faculty advisors among the faculty in the seven department of the Eberly College of Science, Penn State University.
