PLE Early Career Fellowship
Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology

The University of Pittsburgh's Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology (PLE) is
pleased to offer a summer research fellowship of $10,000 plus up to three
months of station fees and residency costs for the primary investigator
(PI). PLE is a vibrant research and education facility located on Lake
Pymatuning in Northwest Pennsylvania. PLE's research facilities are spread
across 350 acres and include access to a variety of aquatic and terrestrial
ecosystems. Its 10,000+ square feet of laboratory facilities include a field
laboratory adjacent to an open field that can be used for large-scale
replicated experiments, a modern molecular laboratory, and facilities for
animal, plant and aquatic studies.

This opportunity is open to researchers holding PhD degrees in any science
discipline that can benefit from PLE's resources
(http://www.biology.pitt.edu/facilities/pymatuning). The purpose of the
fellowship is to permit researchers to explore new projects or collect
preliminary data. Fellowship funds can be used at the PI's discretion to
facilitate the research but not for compensation. Preference will be given
to individuals and projects with the potential to develop into long-term
research activities at PLE. We especially encourage applications from
individuals in the postdoctoral or early faculty phases of their careers but
researchers holding PhD degrees at all stages of their careers are
encouraged to apply.

For more information about the fellowship program or research opportunities
at PLE, please contact the Director, Dr. Cori Richards-Zawacki

Applicants should submit a single .pdf file including their CV, a 2-3 page
proposal outlining the proposed research, a budget detailing how the
fellowship funds will be spent, and planned dates of residence to
cori.zawacki@pitt.edu, placing the words "PLE Early Career Fellowship" in
the subject line of the email. Review of proposals will begin February 1, 2015.
