Melanie Colón Posted January 8, 2019 Share Posted January 8, 2019 PLE Schwartz Early Career Fellowship Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology Summer 2019 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 (https://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 PI 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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 email@example.com, placing the words "PLE Schwartz Early Career Fellowship" in the subject line of the email. Review of proposals will begin February 22, 2019. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
