PLE Schwartz Early Career Fellowship
Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology
Summer 2017

The University of Pittsburgh's Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology (PLE) is
pleased to offer the Frank J. Schwartz Early Career Research Fellowship of
up to $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
working on projects involving fish, but researchers holding PhD degrees at
all stages of their careers and working on projects involving other taxa are
also 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 Schwartz Early Career
Fellowship" in the subject line of the email. Review of proposals will begin
February 10, 2017.
