Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowship
Stable isotope sciences

The Office of Fellowships and Internships is offering an
Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowship in the area of stable
isotope sciences.  Research proposals must integrate the use of
stable isotopes (2H/1H, 13C/12C, 15N/14N, and 18O/16O) into their
specific research questions.  Stable isotope analysis must comprise
a significant portion of the research.  The successful applicant
will conduct analyses at one of the two Pan-Institutional isotope
facilities (OUSS/MCI Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometry Facility in
Suitland, MD or at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute,
Panama City, Panama).

Applicants must have completed or be near completion of the Ph.D.
Recipients who have not completed the Ph.D. at the time of
application must provide proof of completion of the degree before
the fellowship begins.

Applicants must propose to conduct research in-residence for a
period of 12 months, at least 4 months of which will be spent
on-site at the MCI or STRI laboratory.

Applications must be submitted by December 1, 2014.

Applicants interested in this fellowship are strongly encouraged to
contact potential advisors/hosts at any of the Smithsonian's various
Museums and Research Units prior to proposal preparation and
submission.  Prior Isotope Fellows are not eligible.  Please consult
the research staff listed in SORS:
