Posted on 23/08/2021

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology invites applications for the Edward W. Rose Postdoctoral Fellowships. These competitive postdoctoral fellowship awards ( support innovative, independent research by early-career scholars of exceptional promise. 

Rose Postdoctoral Fellowship awards support individuals pursuing cutting-edge scholarship, while fostering intellectual interaction among Lab programs and experts from across the University. Any area of inquiry related to the Lab’s mission “to interpret and conserve the earth’s biological diversity through research, education, and citizen science focused on birds” is potentially appropriate. Activities involving research and/or outreach spanning several Lab programs are particularly encouraged, and some postdoctoral scholars are co-mentored. Projects that foster links among people and units from across Cornell University and beyond are likewise welcome and encouraged. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact the most relevant faculty and staff at the Lab to brainstorm about areas of mutual interest and synergistic projects.

Multiple Rose Fellow positions are available annually, with 2021 applications due on October 4. Find out more information here:
