Description:
The Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) of The Ohio State University announces the Byrd Fellowship Program for Postdoctoral Researchers. This program was established through a major gift from the Byrd Foundation in memory of Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd and Marie Ames Byrd, his wife. This program provides fellowships at The Ohio State University for postdoctoral researchers with superior academic backgrounds who are pursuing advanced research on topics relevant to polar and alpine environments as well as global climate change. Postdoctoral fellows must have received their Ph.D. within five years of selection. Except for fieldwork and other fellowship related research activities that require absence from campus, Byrd Fellows are expected to be in residence at the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center during the tenure of their fellowship.

Applicants should visit the BPCRC website and contact specific members of the Byrd Center prior to submitting their application to discuss possible projects and determine how their proposed research will complement existing BPCRC programs which cover a wide range of disciplines. This fellowship is limited to research of mutual interest to both the fellow and his/her Byrd Center mentor. Postdoctoral awards will be for 18 months. A competitive stipend and a research and travel allowance will be provided.
