Rice University is pleased to invite applications for the Rice Academy Postdoctoral Fellows Program.

The 2018 competition is open to all research areas, but applications/proposals broadly related to coral ecology and evolutionary biology are encouraged. (In fact, two of the first five postdocs awarded in 2016 had an EEB topic.)

Please contact potential faculty mentors/collaborators from our Ecology & Evolutionary Biology program if interested: http://biosciences.rice.edu/Content.aspx?id=2147484507 <http://biosciences.rice.edu/Content.aspx?id=2147484507>
The two-year Rice Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to exceptional scholars who have recently earned the doctoral degree in any area, including medicine, and who want to pursue research with faculty at Rice University. Applications are particularly welcome from those who are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to scholarship. The Fellowship term will begin on September 1, 2018. The Rice University Academy of Fellows is a vibrant interdisciplinary community composed of Rice Academy Postdoctoral Fellows and Rice Academy Faculty Fellows. Academy Postdoctoral Fellows can be housed in any department at Rice University. Postdoctoral Fellows are appointed to a two-year term, and they take a concurrent complementary non-tenure track faculty appointment in an appropriate department at Rice. Fellows are generally expected to remain in residence in or near Houston to actively participate in the Academy. Rice Academy Postdoctoral and Faculty Fellows hold regular gatherings that support social interactions, as well as intellectual and academic pursuits. Fellows should attend regularly and present their work at least once a year. Professional development is a central focus, and Academy Postdoctoral Fellows will receive close mentorship in pursuit of the NIH K99 or other career development awards. The research of each Academy Postdoctoral Fellow is mentored by two professors at Rice University.

The Rice Academy Senior Fellows will begin application reviews as early as December 1, 2017.  All applications for the 2018 competition are due January 10, 2018.
