  Foundational Questions in Evolutionary Biology
FQEB Prize Fellowships

The Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University proposes to elect up to ten research fellows to study foundational questions in evolutionary biology. The successful candidates will receive funding of up to $75,000 per year for up to two consecutive years. The fellows will do cutting-edge research at Harvard University or other academic institutions in the Boston area. The fellows will be expected to participate in the creation of new research networks, to attend regular meetings, and to work across disciplinary boundaries. Work which has significant philosophical implications for evolutionary biology and science more broadly will receive priority. Applicants must have a PhD by autumn 2010 and an excellent track record of scientific productivity, as evidenced by publications.

Applications including a brief description of research interests and proposed projects (no more than 3 pages) and a CV should be sent to lydia_liu@harvard.edu by February 1, 2010. Three letters of reference should also be directly submitted to the same address. One letter should come from the principal investigator of the research lab where the applicant plans to work. Priority will be given to applicants whose host lab can provide supplemental support to the fellow in the form of lab/office space, supplies, computer, travel funds, visa fees, fringe benefits (health/dental insurance).

We strongly encourage applications from female and other underrepresented minority candidates. Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action employer. Employment is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States.
