The University of Alaska (Anchorage-Fairbanks-Juneau) invites  
applications for Graduate and Post-doctoral Fellowships supported by  
NSF's Alaska EPSCoR research focus area in biology. This fellowship  
program is part of a broader Alaska EPSCoR initiative entitled  
"Resilience and Vulnerability in a Rapidly Changing North: The  
Integration of Physical, Biological and Social Processes" which aims  
to fund integrative science concerning socio-ecological  
sustainability in the rapidly transforming northern regions.Through  
this graduate student and postdoctoral fellowship program in Biology  
we intend to support students working in the general research areas  
of biogeography, landscape & spatial genetics, plant-microbial  
interactions, ecology & genetics of invasive species, and the  
influence of species interactions on range expansions. Students and  
postdocs interested in creative ways to integrate their research  
among the interests of biology faculty or with the social and/or  
physical components of the broader Alaska EPSCoR themes are  
encouraged to apply and outline these ideas in their applications.

Graduate Fellowships are for 1-2 years and include a stipend of  
approximately $21,000/year plus health insurance and a tuition award.  
To be considered for a fellowship, students should contact UA faculty  
member(s) to discuss potential research, apply for graduate school at  
the appropriate UA institution, and apply for the fellowship with  
this application.  The deadline to apply to the graduate school and  
for these fellowships is February 1, 2008. A copy of all materials  
should be sent to the student's faculty sponsor. Students who cannot  
make this deadline should contact one of the faculty mentors listed  
below for advice on how to proceed. See also the biology grad  
fellowship ad here for more information.

Postdoctoral Fellowships are for two years and include a salary of  
$42,000/year with excellent benefits and $12,000 a year in research  
funds. Application instructions will be posted here later.
