Rea Postdoctoral Fellow
The Rea Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports training and early career development of outstanding scientists to conduct research at Carnegie Museum of Natural History (CMNH).
The goal of the program is to facilitate innovative collections- or field-based independent research at the museum under the mentorship of scientific staff. The deadline for the submission of applications is May 1, 2021.
Program Description: The program provides funds to conduct a specific research project within a limited time period and under the mentorship of the museum’s curatorial or other senior scientific staff. Fellows may apply to conduct research in the sections of Botany, Ornithology, Earth Science and Minerals, or Invertebrate Zoology.
Additional support may be provided for travel related to collections visits, conferences, and/or field and lab work. The appointment will be for one year and may be extended for a second (and final) year upon performance review. International scholars will receive support to obtain a J-1 visa.
Awardees are expected to be in residence at the museum (except during any periods of travel associated with their project). In addition to the proposed research project, fellows will be expected to deliver a presentation as part of the museum’s R.W. Moriarty Science Seminar Series, and to participate in the museum’s educational activities and other public programs.
Closing Date: May 1st, 2021
