The Sitka Sound Science Center is accepting applications for three  one-month
Scientists in Residency Fellowships (SIRF) for career scientists in Sitka,
a geographically isolated island community in Southeast Alaska. This
program is funded primarily by the National Science Foundation.  The SIRF
program offers scientists a one month mini sabbaticals to allow time to
work on data analysis, writing research results, thinking about new
research questions and an opportunity to establish or finalize
collaborations.   At the same time the SIRF program will provide community
engagement opportunities for scientists to give educational presentations
in the schools and in a variety of public settings.    The purpose of these
outreach activities is to help improve ocean literacy, provide
opportunities for scientists to explain their research to the public and to
give students insight into the many paths careers in science may take.

The 2012 SIRF program has been very rewarding for the SSSC, the community
of Sitka, and the participating scientists. We welcome applications from
scientists interested in participating in 2013/2014. Attached are the
application, frequently asked questions, and a flyer. Please feel free to
forward this email and post the flyer at your institute or agency.

Thanks!
Victoria O'Connell
