Dear Colleagues,

Please see below for a postdoctoral fellowship opportunity at Georgetown
University. If you are interested in a topic related to marine mammals,
especially bottlenose dolphins, but also comparative research (e.g.,
responses to extreme climate events, disease transmission, network
modeling, migration, longitudinal study) please contact Janet Mann
mannj2 at georgetown.edu before applying. Application review begins March 15,


The Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior (EEB) Faculty of Georgetown’s
Department of Biology invites applications for the 21st Century
Postdoctoral Fellowship. Recognizing the educational benefits of a diverse
scientific workforce, the aim of the fellowship is to encourage the
development of an inclusive community of scholars with the background,
expertise, and experience to address the multitude of contemporary and
future environmental challenges. Thus, one of the goals of this
postdoctoral fellowship is to support outstanding scholars who are
committed to building a diverse intellectual community. The program is
particularly interested in scholars with a demonstrated interest in
bringing to their academic careers the critical perspective that comes from
a nontraditional educational background and/or understanding of the
experiences of members of groups historically underrepresented in EEB and
Environmental Biology.

This is a two-year fellowship (with second year renewal required) that
combines research and teaching. The primary expectation is that fellows
will carry out independent research in collaboration with one or more of
our EEB faculty (and potentially faculty from other departments). Please
contact prospective mentors in advance of your application. The fellow will
be fully integrated into the intellectual life of the department, including
department colloquia, research presentations, laboratory meetings, journal
clubs, and professional mentoring.

The fellow will also teach or co-teach one course on a topic in
environmental biology during each year of the program.


Candidates should have completed their PhD within the last three years in
ecology, evolutionary biology or a related discipline (those who will have
documentation of their PhD by August 2020 are also eligible). Fellows are
expected to demonstrate a commitment to inclusive scholarship and have a
demonstrated record of research productivity and publication.


We encourage applicants to reach out to prospective mentor(s) to discuss
their interests and plans. Review of applications will begin by March 15
and continue until the position has been filled. Applications should be
submitted to the following website: https://apply.interfolio.com/74149. and
be ready to upload (as three separate .pdf files): 1) A 1-2 page cover
letter describing their experience, long-term research and teaching goals
and how their interests and background (in terms of culture, race, gender,
ethnicity, disability/ability, socioeconomic status, work/life experience,
etc.) would contribute to a more diverse (broadly defined) research
community, 2) a 2-3 page proposal for specific research activities to be
carried out during this fellowship program, and 3) a short CV including
names and contact information of three references.

The Biology Department at Georgetown (biology.georgetown.edu) is a vibrant,
multidisciplinary academic community in the heart of the Nation’s capital.
Georgetown University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer
fully dedicated to achieving a diverse faculty and staff. All qualified
applicants are encouraged to apply and will receive consideration for
employment without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age,
sex (including pregnancy, gender identity and expression, and sexual
orientation), disability status, protected veteran status, or any other
characteristic protected by law.
