*at the **Sitka Sound Science Center*

* - Polar and Subarctic Scientists of All Disciplines - *

*March 21, 2016*:  There are only ten days left in the application period
for 2017 Polar Scientist in Residency Fellowships (PSIRF) at the Sitka
Sound Science Center in Sitka, Alaska! This program, funded by the National
Science Foundation to attract pre-eminent polar and subarctic scientists to
Sitka, offers several one month-long fellowships for polar and subarctic
scientists each year. Expenses for travel, one month of lodging, per diem
and a small honorarium will be provided to each fellow.


PSIRF is limited to US Citizens and is intended for mid-career scientists
(not graduate students). Scientists live on the Sheldon Jackson Campus, now
owned and operated by the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, and are provided office and
laboratory space at the Science Center. The short sabbatical will allow
scientists undisturbed time that can be used in a variety of ways: data
analysis, manuscript preparation, experimentation, collaboration, or simply
thoughtful process. At the same time, Fellows will learn what Sitka has to
offer researchers in terms of logistical support, research opportunities
and resources.


PSIRF Fellows will spend a week of their residency in outreach and
education activities to share their work in local schools and through other
community forums, such as public library programs, radio programs, and
science cafes. They will give a lecture to the general community through
the Natural History Seminar series supported by the Sitka Charitable Trust
and the University of Alaska Southeast. Fellows will also be provided
guidance on best practices for communicating science to a public audience
in rural Alaska.


The five year NSF award is from the Office of Polar Programs. UAS Associate
Professor Jan Straley is the Principal Investigator for the project. Lauren
Bell is the Director of the program. Applications and further information
is available at the SSSC website www.sitkascience.org/SIRF


*Deadline for application is April 1, 2016*
