LATE-BREAKING NEWS (NOT INCLUDED IN NEWSLETTER)

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY AND RELATED FIELDS
We are now accepting proposals for Postdoctoral Fellowships at The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent). We are looking to support innovative approaches to outstanding problems in evolutionary science. Proposals in any area of evolutionary science are welcome, but proposals in the following areas are of particular interest: Evolutionary Medicine, Synthetic Biology and Origins of Life, Evolution and the Social Sciences, and K-12 Minority Education in Evolution. Proposals are due July 10 for two-year Fellowships that will begin no later than January 2013; we anticipate that award decisions will be made by first week of October. For more information, please see our website at https://www.nescent.org/science/proposals.php.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS – SABBATICAL SCHOLARS, WORKING GROUPS AND CATALYSIS MEETINGS
Proposals for Sabbaticals, Working Groups and Catalysis Meetings are now being accepted at The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent). We are looking to support innovative approaches to outstanding problems in evolutionary science. In particular, proposals that have a clear interdisciplinary focus, or involve evolutionary concepts in non-traditional disciplines, are strongly encouraged, as are proposals that demonstrate international participation and a mix of senior and emerging researchers, including graduate students. Proposals are accepted twice a year, with deadlines on July 10 and December 1. Proposals in any area of evolutionary science are welcome, but proposals in Evolution and the Social Sciences and K-12 Minority Education in Evolution are also being considered for the July 10 deadline (Proposals in one of these two areas must include “Targeted Initiative” in proposal title; see also http://www.nescent.org/news/newsdetail.php?id=225 and https://www.nescent.org/news/newsdetail.php?id=229). Proposals for Sabbaticals may be for up to a full year. We also accept proposals for short-term visits (2 weeks to 3 months; deadlines on January 1, April 1, July 1 and September 1). For more information, please see our website at https://www.nescent.org/science/proposals.php.
GRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS IN EVOLUTIONARY SCIENCE AND RELATED FIELDS
NESCent is now including graduate training in its portfolio, by offering one-semester fellowships for graduate students to pursue research with a NESCent sabbatical scholar, a NESCent postdoctoral scholar, or a NESCent Working Group. Deadlines are January 1 (for a fall semester fellowship) and July 1 (for a spring semester fellowship). For more information, please see our website at https://www.nescent.org/science/proposals.php.
