David H. Smith Conservation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

David H. Smith Conservation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
This post-doctoral fellowship program identifies and supports early-career scientists who will shape the field of applied conservation biology. David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowships are available to post-doctoral researchers (of any nationality) affiliated with a United States institution, proposing research that addresses pressing conservation issues for the United States. Smith Fellowships provide two years of postdoctoral support to outstanding early-career scientists.

Eligibility and Award Terms:

individuals must have completed their doctorate within the past five years or by the time the award is made in 2012. Applicants who have not yet completed their doctorate must clearly indicate on the application the date the degree is expected.
Fellows will spend up to three weeks per year during their fellowship attending Program-sponsored professional development retreats each year.
Fellows are employed either by their sponsoring academic or conservation organization, typically the location of either their academic or practitioner mentor. The Program will provide up to 5% of the total direct costs as overhead reimbursement to the host organization. Second-year renewal of the fellowship is contingent upon satisfactory progress (including but not limited to participation in Program sponsored retreats) as well as timely completion of first-year activity and financial reports.
