Dear Taxacomers,

Many thanks,

Early Career Research Fellowships (Sainsbury Orchid Fellowships)

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew seeks outstanding postdoctoral candidates to take up two Early Career Research Fellowships focusing on orchid diversity, taxonomy, systematics and evolution. The successful candidates will establish their own independent research programmes closely aligned with Kew's Science Strategy, developing funding streams, producing excellent publications, and engaging fully with science life across the institution. They will be future leaders in the science disciplines pursued at Kew.

We seek applicants who are outstanding early career scientists with a PhD in a relevant subject area (awarded within the past eight years) and, ideally, some postdoctoral experience. Applicants will have a proven aptitude for delivering excellent science publications and demonstrated potential to raise science income. Applicants should also be outstanding and enthusiastic communicators who are ready to engage with students, peers and the general public.

Closing date for applications: 10 January 2016
