Please notice the announcement  sent to the Smithsonian from the NESCENT
program.  If you are interested, and have a project that qualifies,
please contact Dr. Cunningham directly, but if it is going to involve
me, please copy me on the correspondance.
Note that the deadline is coming up soon:  They really did not give us a
whole lot of time to plan.

"I am pleased to announce that the National Evolutionary Synthesis
Center (NESCENT) calls for proposals for up to 10 PostDoctoral and 5
Sabbatical fellowships.  Please see www. nescent.org for details about

	PostDoctoral and Sabbatical Fellowships will support ambitious, 
synthetic research on any aspect of evolutionary biology and relevant 

	Sabbatical applicants should take note of our full-salary "targeted 
sabbatical" program to attract individuals interested in developing 
community computational infrastructure for evolutionary biology, and for 
evolutionists from Minority Serving Universities.  

	-Open to fellows of ALL nationalities
	-Research projects should be carried out primarily on-site
	-We will begin reviewing applications on February 1, 2005
	-We will stop accepting applications on March 1, 2005
	-Starting dates will be before September 2005

	Proposals can include any type of synthetic project, but should not 
include time at the bench or in the field. Projects can be entirely 
theoretical and may involve developing analytical methods and software. 	
Projects can also be purely empirical, synthesizing data from:  

  - the literature
  - existing databases
  - new databases built with NESCENT help
  - visits to museums or other data centers
  - cooperating laboratories anwhere in the world
