The Earth Institute and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University invite applications for the Marie Tharp Fellowship 2011-2012. This fellowship is part of a greater EI/LDEO effort at promoting the advancement of women scientists. The purpose of the award is to provide an opportunity for earth scientists to conduct research at Columbia University for a period of 3 months. Fellows will have an opportunity to work with faculty, research staff, post docs, and graduate students during their fellowship. Each fellow is expected to participate in EI/LDEO activities and make a scientific presentation during their residence.
The competition is open to junior and mid-career scientists in the earth sciences. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. at the time of application. The goal of this award is to promote women in science. Faculty (full-time or adjunct) and researchers at Columbia University are not eligible to apply.
The duration of the Marie Tharp Fellowship is for three months over the period September 2011 through August 2012. Fellows are encouraged to visit for three consecutive months, but they may choose to take their fellowship in two separate visits. The fellowship must be taken in residence at one of the earth science units of the Earth Institute (see end for complete list of eligible units) and will provide up to $30,000 for support of the fellow during the three-month period.
Fellows can use this award to pay salary, research expenses and travel, up to a total of $30,000 over a three-month period. The following maximum individual limits are proposed: Salary $25,000 (including fringe); Research Expenses $25,000; Travel: $5,000. That is, if you request a salary of $24,000 then you can request only up to $6,000 for research and travel expenses. In case of compelling reasons, the fellow may submit a written request to the LDEO Directorate to waive one or more of these limits.
Applicants must submit a proposal (maximum three pages) describing the proposed project and with whom at Columbia they would like to work. It is strongly recommended that applicants contact their Columbia collaborators prior to submission. The proposal must be accompanied by a Curriculum Vita, a proposed budget, and two letters of reference. Please use the budget guidelines given above.
All application materials must be submitted by March 31, 2011 via email to Kuheli.Dutt@columbia.edu. All materials must be submitted as a single combined PDF document. Incomplete applications will not be considered. References may be either included in the combined document or sent via email separately.
Marie Tharp Fellows will be notified of their appointment by April 30, 2011.
