NSF REPS program
The Schmitz Lab at the Yale School of the Environment is recruiting a recent grad for a 1-year paid fellowship. The fellow will design an independent project on any topic relating to food webs, ecosystem function, evolutionary ecology, and climate change, as part of a larger NSF project.
The fellow would be based in New Haven CT, with a flexible start date of Sept 1 2021. The fellow will work with the PIs, postdoc, and doctoral students to develop an independent research project, with the goal of generating a first-authored manuscript and presenting at conferences. We will also provide professional development to prepare the fellow for next steps in a STEM career or graduate school.
The fellow will be funded by the National Science Foundation, specifically for recent grads who want to pursue a STEM career, but were unable to have a research experience as an undergraduate student due to pandemic-related interruptions.
- US citizen or permanent resident
- Completed a bachelor’s degree but not currently enrolled in another degree program
- Priority placed on students from underrepresented groups, veterans, or those who have not participated in any kind of research experience.
- Some level of comfort around spiders and ticks (or willingness to be uncomfortable) is preferred.
Interested folks should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of their cv and brief biosketch (1-paragraph max). Applications for the NSF REPS program are due on July 2nd, so please get in touch as soon as possible. Consideration of candidates will begin June 25th.
