  The Smithsonian Institution has a post-doc opportunity in the field of
stable isotope sciences.  Please pass this along to any interested
persons.  You can contact me directly with any questions.


Christine France

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.
Please go here
for details on the SI fellowship program.

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

Please go here
for details on the SI fellowship program. *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

Applications for the Stable Isotope Postdoctoral Fellowship apply in SOLAA

A fellowship may not be awarded to any person who has been employed by or
under contract to the Institution in the previous year without the prior
approval of the Office of Fellowships and Internships.
