Two Postdoctoral Fellowships in Marine science

Sarasota, FL
Organization: Mote Marine Laboratory, Sarasota, FL

Mote Marine Laboratory (Mote), an independent not-for-profit institution, has adopted a 2020 Vision & Strategic Plan and will recruit two new Postdoctoral Fellows in late 2011. New Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to begin between September 1 and December 31, 2011. Each full-time position includes an annual salary of $40,000. Health insurance is also provided with each position, with family options. Benefits include an opt-in retirement plan with employer matching, leaves for holidays, illness, and vacation, and other benefits.
Each Postdoctoral Fellow will have an established researcher assigned to serve as a dedicated mentor, and will receive office/laboratory space and funds for startup, operations, and travel. Each Fellowship position will be for a period of two years (assuming appropriate first-year progress). The Mote Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program is planning on having eight concurrent Fellowship positions overlapping each year by 2020. Exemplary Fellows may be invited to join Mote as Staff Scientists upon completion of their initial two-year appointment.
Recent PhD graduates and others with prior postdoctoral experience are invited to apply. Applications from any field of marine research including engineering, social science, and policy will be considered. Equal consideration will be given to candidates working in Mote's current fields of inquiry, candidates that meld Mote's current fields of inquiry, and candidates who will pursue new research directions. For a complete description of Mote's research programs, the postdoctoral program and application requirements see www.mote.org/2011postdocs. Watch the site for updates and announcements.
Applications are due by 5:00 pm EDT, June 29, 2011, to humanresources@mote.org.
