Sitka Sound Science Center (*www.sitkascience.org
<http://www.sitkascience.org>*) will hold 3 one-month Scientists in
Residency Fellowships (SIRF) for mid-career scientists throughout the
academic year in Sitka, a geographically isolated island community in
Southeast Alaska. This program is funded by the National Science
Foundation.  The SIRF program brings  polar and subarctic scientists to
Sitka for one month mini sabbaticals to allow scientists time to work on
completing data analysis, writing research results, thinking about new
research questions and how their work can be integrated into other
scientific work .  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 and to participate in
science communication training.  The purpose of these outreach activities
is to help improve science  literacy,  provide opportunities for scientists
to explain their research to the public and to give students insight into
the many career  paths available in science.  The Fellowship is limited to
US Citizens and is intended for mid-career scientists.

The application period has been extended until March 31, 2015.
