Pymatuning Lab of Ecology Early Career Fellowship - DEADLINE EXTENDED

Melanie Colón

Recommended Posts

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 15, 2015.
