Post-doctoral position: The Field Museum

The Field Museum seeks candidates for a two-year post-doctoral fellowship
emphasizing interdisciplinary research as well as the central role of
museum collections. The Boyd Fellowship program was created in honor of
former Field Museum president Willard Boyd, who stressed the importance of
interdisciplinary work to the intellectual strength of the Museum. The
successful candidate will have a successful record of research in an area
that bridges any of the Museum's scientific areas, including anthropology,
archaeology, botany, systematics, evolutionary biology, conservation
biology, paleontology, and zoology. Research must involve development and
use of the Museum's collections, which span anthropology, botany, geology,
zoology, as well as tissue collections for molecular work. Boyd fellows are
expected to participate fully as part of the Field Museum academic
community, to undertake high-quality original research, and to present
their work to both academic and public audiences. The fellowship runs for
two years, carries full Museum benefits, and a modest research budget.

The Field Museum is an equal opportunity employer and actively encourages
applicants from diverse backgrounds. Send cover letter, including outline
of a project, C.V., and names of references to Chair, Boyd Post-Doctoral
Fellow Search Committee, Office of Academic Affairs, The Field Museum, 1400
S. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605. Applications will be accepted until
Sept. 30, 2002. Position available starting January 2003 and will remain
open until filled.
