Short-Term Visitors
We are now accepting proposals for Short Term Visitors at The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent). Terms at NESCent can be up to 3 months; all visits must be planned so that they are complete by 30 Jun 2015. We are looking to support innovative approaches to outstanding problems in evolutionary science. Proposals are due 1 Dec 2014. For more information, please see our website at https://www.nescent.org/science/proposals.php. Any questions can be directed to Susan Alberts, Associate Director for Science, at alberts@duke.edu, or Craig McClain, Assistant Director for Science, at cmcclain@nescent.org.

Journalist In Residence
Are you a journalist who wants to deepen your understanding of evolution? Print, broadcast, and online journalists are invited to apply for a fellowship program at the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) in Durham, North Carolina. The program offers a unique opportunity for reporters, producers, and editors to work on an ambitious, exciting project of their own choosing with an evolutionary focus (books, or a series of articles, for instance). You will interact with world experts in a wide range of evolutionary topics including human evolution, evolutionary medicine, paleontology, biodiversity, conservation, and climate change. As a NESCent journalist-in-residence, you’ll have time to explore diverse areas of evolutionary science or delve deeply into a single topic. You are also welcome to participate in a variety of scientific meetings, seminars and other learning experiences, as well as enjoy quiet time for reading and independent study. Journalists are invited to study at NESCent for varying lengths of stay depending on their time constraints and interests -- from two or three weeks to up to three months. Journalists-in-residence will receive support for travel to and from NESCent, a housing allowance for the duration of their visit, and a meal per diem. You will also be provided with office space at NESCent, located in a historic textile mill in a vibrant university community at the edge of the Duke University campus. To most benefit from the in-house and visiting scientific community at NESCent, those selected for the program should plan to be on-site at the center for a minimum of three days per week during their fellowship. Proposal and submission guidelines can be found at http://www.nescent.org/science/Journalist-in-residence.php.
