 The U.S. National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCENT) is pleased to
announce the first calls for proposals for up to 10 PostDoctoral and 5
Sabbatical fellowships. Please see for details about

        PostDoctoral and Sabbatical Fellowships will support ambitious,
synthetic research on any aspect of

evolutionary biology and relevant disciplines.

        Sabbatical applicants should take note of our full-salary "targeted
sabbatical" program to attract individuals interested in developing
community computational infrastructure for evolutionary biology, and for
evolutionists from Minority Serving Universities.

        -Open to fellows of ALL nationalities

        -Research projects should be carried out primarily on-site

        -We will begin reviewing applications on February 1, 2005

        -We will stop accepting applications on March 1, 2005

        -Starting dates will be before September 2005

        Proposals can include any type of synthetic project, but should not
include time at the bench or in the field.

        Projects can be entirely theoretical and may involve developing
analytical methods and software.

        Projects can also be purely empirical, synthesizing data from:

- the literature

- existing databases

- new databases built with NESCENT help

- visits to museums or other data centers

- cooperating laboratories anywhere in the world
