Applications call for Edward O. Wilson Biodiversity Postdoctoral Fellowship 2021
Through a generous founding gift from Edward O. Wilson, Faculty-Curator Emeritus and University Research Professor Emeritus, and with support from additional donors, the Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ) at Harvard University has established the E.O. Wilson Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Basically, this program supports postdoctoral researchers at MCZ to pursue the discovery and formal taxonomic description of Earth’s animal species.
Fellows of Edward O. Wilson Biodiversity Postdoctoral Fellowship will work under the supervision of one or more MCZ faculty-curators, who will provide office space, access to lab facilities, and necessary research support. In addition to that, the program aims to achieve broad taxonomic coverage and is not restricted to any particular taxon. At this time, the selection of fellows will give priority to candidates who work on living species.
Candidates must have the following qualifications to be eligible for Edward O. Wilson Biodiversity Postdoctoral Fellowship
Applications will be reviewed by a committee of Harvard faculty. The likelihood that the proposed work will result in the discovery and formal taxonomic description of animal species will be a critical consideration in the selection process. Moreover, preference will be given to applicants not currently affiliated with Harvard University, and to those who have received their doctoral degree within the previous three years.
