Sloan Research Fellowships in Ocean Sciences
Just received this …
As a long-time consultant to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, I am reaching out to you today with the hope that you will join us in identifying the next class of remarkable scholars studying the Earth’s oceans. I am hopeful you will share this email and information about the Sloan Research Fellowships in Ocean Sciences with senior leaders at the science programs you support and others at the Moore Foundation.
The Alfred P. Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Sloan Research Fellowships. The Sloan Research Fellowships in Ocean Sciences, now in their third year, encompass ocean-related disciplines as diverse as microbiology and zoology, chemistry and Earth science. To be considered, the online nomination and submission process must be completed no later than September 16, 2013. To begin the online nomination and submission process, visit http://www.sloan.org/sloan-research-fellowships/apply-online/.
The two-year, $50,000 fellowships are awarded annually to researchers in the U.S. and Canada in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their fields.
To be eligible, candidates must:
· Hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in chemistry, computational or evolutionary molecular biology, computer science, economics, mathematics, neuroscience, ocean sciences (including marine biology), physics, or a related field;
· Hold a tenure track or equivalent position at a college, university or other degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada, and;
· Be no more than six years from completion of their most recent Ph.D. or equivalent, as of the nomination year, with some exceptions for candidates whose careers were disrupted due to military service, child-rearing, or change of field.
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation welcomes nominations of all candidates who meet the traditional high standards of this program, and strongly encourages the participation of women and members of underrepresented minority groups.
Your help in spreading the word is greatly appreciated.
